Lisbeth Salander is by likely by far my favorite fictional character in the universe. After reading her adventures in Stieg Larssonn’s novels, I went on to fall in love with Rooney Mara’s Oscar nominated performance and in response, fell in love with Mara herself. I even dedicated a large image gallery simply dedicated to the best Rooney Mara pictures I could dig up.
