goodbye.
the villainess resembles your mother, at least around the eyes - treacherous, limpid and seal-like. inevitably handsome as a lioness, she commands ranks, smokes cigarettes, wears fur, has sex without apologizing. Sometimes, she looks just like you, but with crow's feet, more tattoos and better lingerie. |

Lisbeth Salander walks in: A small, pale, anorexic-looking waif in her early 20’s. Short black-dyed hair - pierced eyelid - tattoo of a wasp on her neck; probably several more under her black leather jacket - black t-shirt, black jeans, black Caterpillar boots.

Frode is only middlingly successful in concealing his initial reaction to her. This isn’t punk fashion. This is someone saying, “Stay the fuck away from me.”
