Of all the women for Blomkvist to claim he thinks he’s fallen in love with. Figuerola? Does anyone see this as a bit of an anti climax? For instance in GWPWF he shows a lot of interest in Harriet Vanger and wanting her. Obviously Erika and him have a thing that will never subside and they truly care about each other. He also seems to care about Lisbeth very much and I don’t think it is entirely because he owes his life to her. I think they are genuine feelings. From the moment he comes face to face with Figuerola he just seems, for want of a better word (that I effing HATE to use) sort of ‘meh’ about her. He shows no interest! It is sex, yes. Though he has shown more interest and feelings for Cecilia Vanger and Lisbeth for crying out loud. All of a sudden he’s gazing out of the window in Berger’s office declaring his love for her? Throughout the Hornets’ Nest from the moment she was introduced, he doesn’t think about her, he doesn’t plague her for her company and she seems obsessed with him and jealous of Berger.
Does anyone else think that it was a bit far fetched?
