That's easy Eva is a dentist. Clearly a torturer in her own right.
Also is a supplier of needed sedation drugs and or gasses. Basically she was in on it too. But, since it was all handled the way it was, she slinked back into the shadows completely unnoticed, And thus had little bearing on the main story. No danger of anything written by Lagercrantz having the success of Stieg Larsson. He'll die a slow death, Eva. He's nowhere near the calibre author Stieg Larsson was. The reader knows she's not reading Stieg Larsson after a few sentences.
Though it was written by another, It pretty much folowed the Girl. And as excitibg as were the Trilogy they took on a thriller writers account. There is more of Lisbet but Mikael is just barely mentioned. I liked the trillogy due to the interaction between the two unlikely joining. After all Lisbet saves Mikaels life, it is even mentioned to that fact in the Eye for an Eye.
Mikael is the constant in the "girl" books in my mind. He is the sanity with the bang fir the buck if she should need. This was the first idea I had when I heard about his life and his political engagement today 5. I never heard about him, but last evening there was a report on German state-run television about a new book which reveals Stieg Larsson's heritage concerning the assassination of Olof Palme the former Swedish Prime Minister.
According to the author of this book Jan Stocklassa: The heritage of Stieg Larsson , Larsson had carried together a lot of information about the involvement of Swedish right wing extremists in the murder of Olof Palme. Correspondent to Stocklassa, Olof Palme had "build up a strong hate and resistance from people from inside and outside of Sweden who came together in a horrible alliance to get rid of Olof Palme". The concrete catalyst of his assassination would have been - according to Stocklassa - the intention of Olof Palme to unveil an arms trade with South Africa at this time ruled by the racist apartheid government , which would have been a threat to "very powerful people inside and outside of South Africa".
In this context, it could be useful to analyze the following statement: "Larsson died of a massive heart attack when he climbed the seven flights of stairs to his office because the building's elevator was broken. Was the coincidence of the "broken elevator" with the death of Stieg Larsson really a pure accident? I cannot answer this question, but it seems that the "poor health" of Stieg Larsson was well known at this time cf. And I wonder which secret services were implicated in the assassination of Olof Palme.
An I suppose that British and maybe US secret services have played a part there, too, and beside or presumably together with right wing extremists. Larsson takes what seemed at the outset to be a juicy 'locked-island-mystery plot' and turns it first into an insightful family saga and then into a scathing political and social commentary that forces us to think about such a wide variety of themes and aspects that we normally refuse to accept as part of society. It takes an author like Larsson to shove it in our faces in all its stinking ugliness for us to stop turning the blind eye at these atrocities.
I seriously don't understand why people do these fucked up things! The life of those children is fucked up for good. I have been sexually assaulted as a child and honestly I think that's reason why I ended up in prostitution. Erland also added that Stieg had always shown interest in writing, which became increasingly evident as he clattered away on the typewriter that they had given him.
In fact, they had to rent another room for him to type in, as the noise had started becoming unbearable for the rest of the family. The days and nights that Stieg spent typing may have been a telling sign of things to come.

Larsson explained that one of his main recurring characters in the Millennium series, Lisbeth Salander, is actually fashioned on a grown-up Pippi Longstocking as he chose to sketch her. Both are women from disastrous childhoods who somehow survive to become adults with notable skills, including fighting, and who accomplish good by operating somewhat outside the law.
