If we start off defining $1 billion as 1,000 times 1 Million, Lisbeth has used a minuscule amount of that money.
I figure when she arrived back in Stockholm off the Oslo train, she had the following:
49 Million Kronor in Cayman Island Bank
1 Million Kronor on her Wasp Credit Card
10% of the bonds cashed into currency and placed in 30 numbered accounts in 9 private Swiss Banks
90% of the bonds–still physically bonds in a security deposit box in one of the private Swiss banks (I think that 90% represented over 2 billion kronor)
I wonder why she put so little money in the Cayman Island Bank and so little on her Wasp CC?
Anybody else fascinated why she handled the money the way she did? Seems like there could have been more explanation. Maybe it was edited out. I would have been interested in it.
