Prologue, Part 1 - chapters 1-3 Summary

Prologue:

Lisbeth Salander is strapped to a bed. It is night. She marks off another day in her head. Some heavy piece of machinery begins to hum and causes the bed to vibrate. She expects a visitor although it is too late for him to call. Lisbeth has no choice but to lie in the bed and wait. The leather restraints are too tight and cannot be budged.

"She detested this helplessness. No matter how hard she tried to concentrate on something else—to pass the time and to distract her from the situation she was in—the fear came trickling out." Prologue, p. 5

Lisbeth decides to think about something else. She pictures a man in a car. Gasoline is poured on the car and it begins to burn.
