Justice and Judgment Quotes

How we cite our quotes:

Quote #1

"You can absolutely rely on me as long as you don't reveal that you're engaged in any sort of criminal activity." (5.22)

Part of why Armansky is so successful at the private security business is his absolute dedication to the law. This dedication also causes him to clash with Salander, who works for him, since she often works around the law.

Quote #2

If Armansky's account is true, Lisbeth Salander had at very least been deprived of the opportunity to exercise her constitutionally protected rights and liberties. (12.30)

In this passage we are seeing into the mind of Torsten Edklinth of the Constitutional Protection Unit of the Security Police. He's about to become a crucial part of Team Salander. It looks like at least some part of the Security Police isn't totally evil.

Quote #3

"If you leak that report, you'll not only be fired but you'll be guilty of gross misconduct." (11.210)

Bublanski is trying to convince his partner Modig that she shouldn't risk her career to expose the truth of Salander's victimization. She is not convinced, and does risk her job by meeting privately with Blomkvist.
