As we discuss in the related theme of "Versions of Reality," the Section and Teleborian build an elaborate castle of lies and deceit in order to silence and discredit Salander. To keep their castle standing, they have to keep adding more lies and creating more deceptions. For example, they don't just want to murder Blomkvist, but also to make him look like a drug dealer. This gets pretty outrageous and keeps the novel fun. There's constant Spy vs Spy action as the Security Police, Blomkvist, and Milton Security spy on the Section as the Section spies on Blomkvist, and as Salander and the Hacker Republic spy on everybody else. It's interesting that some members of Team Salander use what could be considered lies and deceit to bring the truth to light.
