CHARACTERS IN THE MILLENNIUM SERIES

LISBETH SALANDER an elusive, exceptionally talented hacker and mathematical genius, tattooed and with a troubled past, driven by a need for justice – and vengeance.
MIKAEL BLOMKVIST a leading investigative journalist at Millennium magazine. Salander helped him to research one of the biggest stories of his career, about the disappearance of Harriet Vanger. He later helped to clear her of murder and vindicate her in a legal battle over her right to determine her own affairs. Sometimes nicknamed “Kalle Blomkvist”, after a boy detective who appears in several novels by Astrid Lindgren.
ALEXANDER ZALACHENKO also known as Zala, or his alias Karl Axel Bodin. A Russian spy who defected to Sweden and was protected for years by a special group within Säpo. He was the head of a criminal empire but also the father of Lisbeth Salander, who tried to kill him for the violent abuse of her mother. Ultimately he was finished off by Säpo.
RONALD NIEDERMANN Lisbeth Salander’s half-brother, a blonde giant impervious to pain. Salander arranged for his murder.
CAMILLA SALANDER Lisbeth’s troublesome twin sister, from whom she is estranged. Known to be linked to criminal gangs and thought to live in Moscow.
AGNETA SALANDER Lisbeth and Camilla’s mother, who died in a nursing home at the age of forty-three.
HOLGER PALMGREN Salander’s former guardian, a lawyer. One of the few people who knows Salander well and whom she trusts.
DRAGAN ARMANSKY Salander’s former employer, the head of Milton Security. Another of the few she trusts.
PETER TELEBORIAN Salander’s sadistic child psychiatrist. Chief prosecution witness in Salander’s incompetency trial.
