He's sure Salander won't answer, but he comes once a week, just in case. Back at his apartment, he thinks of her.
(Flashback to some of the events of Girl With the Dragon Tattoo: Salander saves Blomkvist's life and helps him find a serial killer. Salander, hacker-name Wasp, is one of the best hackers alive, and has a photographic memory. Her hacking skills help Blomkvist expose a huge financial fraud, known as "The Wennerström Affair." But then Salander, now his lover, cuts him out of her life without explanation.)
After a shower, Salander looks at herself in the mirror in her hotel room.
She had breast implants in Italy and is pleased with the results.
Back in the lobby, Salander hears that a hurricane is due to hit Grenada.
She learns that the man in room 32 is named Dr. Forbes and arranges a background check.
Next, she visits her friend George Bland, a sixteen-year-old student, at his shack. (Flashback.)
Salander first met George on the beach, where he was struggling with his algebra homework. She helped him with math, and they soon become lovers.
