The girl who kicked the hornet’s nest

“You walk around feeling like a teenager and immortal your whole life, and suddenly there isn’t much time left.”

La aproape doi ani de cand am citit “Fata care s-a jucat cu focul” si la cine stie cat timp de cand am citit “Fata cu un dragon tatuat”, am reusit sa ajung si la ultima parte. Am citit-o, desi aveam clar lacune in ceea ce privea actiunea… Noroc ca Larsson face un fel de recapitulare a primelor doua parti si revii la curent cu tot. Ma rog, aproape tot. Prea multe personaje care intra si ies. Mi-au trebuit cateva secunde sa incerc sa-mi aduc aminte: “cine era asta?”. Concluzia: s-a terminat asa cum trebuia sa se termine, cand credeam ca s-a terminat a mai aparut un ultim personaj care sa-si mai faca de cap un pic si pana la urma tot prietenia invinge. Cum altfel? In plus, multe citate despre dragoste intr-o carte cu spioni. Bun asa. Inseamna ca mai avem o sansa.

After almost two years since I’ve read “The girl who played with fire” and who knows how long since I’ve read “The girl with the dragon tattoo”, I managed to reach the last part. I read it, even though I was clearly lacking some bits about the plot… Lucky me that Larsson makes a revision of the first two books and you’re updated with everything. Well, almost everything. Too many characters going in and out. I had to stop for a few seconds and try to remember: “who was that?”. Conclusion: it ended the way it was supposed to, when I thought it ended another character showed up and tried to mess the situation a bit and in the end, friendship wins. How else could it be? Besides, too many quotes about love in a book about spies. Good. It means we still have a chance.

I don’t want to see any rings on the water.(metaphor for: I don’t want this to be known)

Faste knew better than to argue with a doctor, since they were the closest things to God’s representatives here on earth. Policemen possibly excepted.

If love is liking someone an awful lot, then I suppose I’m in love with several people.

He screws his way through life and doesn’t seem to grasp how much it can hurt those women who think of him more than a casual affair.

Nobody can avoid falling in love, he said. They might want to deny it, but friendship is probably the most common form of love.
