Girl Who Played With Fire Plot Hole
While reading the Girl Who Played With Fire, I was very close to finishing it until I reached page 657. My eyes fixated on one portion of the text, it was a huge gaping plot hole staring right back at me (in my opinion).
So hear me out…
Throughout the entire book, all of Sweden is looking for Salander, she is on the front page of every newspaper. I’m assuming she’d be known as a fugitive internationally even.
So how is it that when Blomkvist is reading through her mail from her P.O. Box, (on page 657) and he gets to the letter from her real estate agent who sold her the luxurious apartment (she had been hiding out in the entire book). AND HE KNOWS HER REAL NAME, IT’S ADDRESSED TO MS. SALANER (NOT IRENE NESSER)! That he would not inform the police or clue them in to where she was hiding out… Like I said she was wanted on such a grand scale that no one could overlook it, or not be informed of it. So if he did know, which he did, he would be legally obligated to inform the Police or he’d be charged with embedding a fugitive.
…Am I right?? Let me know your thoughts!
