Quote #10

That evening the Judge Iverson decided to release Salander and to revoke her declaration of incompetence. (28.64)

Another point for justice! Finally, Salander is recognized as the perfectly sane adult woman she is.

Quote #11

Suddenly the nail gun felt too heavy for her to hold against his spine, even with both hands. (Epilogue.207)

Salander decides not to kill her brother, but to leave him in the hands of official justice. Why does she do this? Does she make the right decision? Do you think she would have made this same decision back in Dragon Tattoo?
