The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo Stieg Larsson CONTENTS TITLE PAGE PROLOGUE A FRIDAY IN NOVEMBER THE VANGER FAMILY TREE. Murder mystery, family saga, love story, and financial intrigue combine into one satisfyingly complex and entertainingly atmospheric novel, the first in Stieg Larsson's thrilling Millenium series featuring Lisbeth Salander. He hires Mikael Blomkvist, a crusading journalist.
I will offer an explanation of the role of paratexts in terms of flexibility, fluidity, and complexity. Paratexts, designed to be mobile, short-lived, and spreadable, are spaces in which circulatory instances, characteristic of the current media panorama, are more visible. This is especially the case when they are considered sites of negotiation of meaning and translation across worlds, parts of a semiotic process through which an ecosystem adapts to the environment during its lifetime. The books tell the story of Lisbeth Salander, a year-old computer hacker who assists the journalist Mikael Blomkvist in solving a complex detective story involving violence against women. The novels were immediately adapted into three Swedish movies Niels Arden Oplev and Daniel Alfredson, and released in six parts, with added footage for Swedish television Each version differs in rhythm, length, and detail.
Blomkvist moves to the island and begins to research the Vanger family history and Harriet's disappearance. As he does so, he meets most of the remaining Vanger clan, including Harriet's brother Martin, current CEO of the company; Isabella, Martin and Harriet's mother; and Cecilia, a headmistress who was Harriet's younger aunt and friend. Meanwhile, Salander's legal guardian Holger Palmgrem suffers a stroke , and is replaced by Nils Bjurman, who uses his position to extort sexual acts from her and eventually rapes her.
After using a hidden camera to record her assault, Salander takes her revenge, torturing Bjurman and threatening to ruin him unless he gives her full control of her life and finances. She then uses a tattoo machine to brand him as a rapist. On Hedeby Island, Blomkvist pursues new evidence in Harriet's disappearance, including photographs showing Harriet's discomfort at the sight of a young man.
He also discovers a set of names and numbers believed to be old telephone numbers in Harriet's journal; however, his daughter Pernilla, passing through on the way to Bible camp, identifies them as passages from the Book of Leviticus , which describe rules about violent punishment of women. Blomkvist correlates one of them with the grotesque murder of a Vanger Corporation secretary in , and realizes that he may be on the trail of a serial killer.
Vanger's lawyer suggests Salander as a research assistant. Blomkvist realises that Salander hacked into his computer for the initial report, and confronts her to ask her to help with the investigation, to which she agrees. The two eventually become casual lovers. However, they realize they are being threatened when a local cat is left dismembered on their porch, and Blomkvist is shot at from a distance during an afternoon jog. Meanwhile, they uncover the remaining four murders corresponding to what was described in Harriet's journal, as well as several more that fit the profile.
Moreover, most of the murders occurred in locations where the Vanger Corporation did business. They are initially suspicious that the murderer was Gottfried Vanger, Martin and Harriet's deceased father, but they find out that he died prior to the last victim's death.
While Salander continues to hunt through Vanger Corporation archives, Blomkvist manages to identify the man in the photograph: her brother Martin. However, before he can do anything, Martin takes Blomkvist prisoner, revealing that Gottfried "initiated" him into the ritual rape and murder of women before his own death, and implies that Gottfried sexually abused both him and Harriet. Martin admits to murdering dozens of women but denies killing his sister. He attempts to murder Blomkvist, but Salander—who had discovered the connections independently—arrives and attacks Martin.
Martin flees by car, pursued by Salander, and commits suicide by purposely colliding with an oncoming truck.
Believing that Cecilia's sister Anita, who now lives in London, is the only relative who might know something about Harriet's fate, Blomkvist and Salander meet her and learn that Harriet is still alive and living under Anita's name in Australia. When Blomkvist flies there to meet her, Harriet tells him the truth about her disappearance: her father and brother had repeatedly raped her, until she killed her father in self-defense.
Martin was sent away to preparatory school, but he returned the day of her disappearance. Harriet realized she needed to escape, so she found a place to hide during the traffic accident, and Anita smuggled her to the mainland the next morning. Blomkvist persuades Harriet to return to Sweden, where she reunites with Henrik.
Blomkvist then accompanies Salander to her mother's funeral. Salander, using her hacking skills, succeeds in stealing some 2. Blomkvist and Salander spend Christmas together in his holiday retreat.
A person with a diagnosis of sexual sadism is sometimes called a sadist. The name of the disorder is derived from the proper name of the Marquis Donatien de Sade , a French aristocrat who became notorious for writing novels around the theme of inflicting pain as a source of sexual pleasure.
The sadistic acts performed or fantasized by a person with sadism often reflect a desire for sexual or psychological domination of another person. These acts range from behavior that is not physically harmful although it may be humiliating to the other person such as being urinated upon , to criminal and potentially deadly behavior.
Acts of domination may include holding or imprisoning the partner through the use of handcuffs, cages, chains, or ropes. Other acts and fantasies related to sexual sadism include paddling, spanking, whipping, burning, beating, administering electrical shocks, biting, urinating or defecating on the other person, cutting, rape, murder, and mutilation.
Psychopathia Sexualis, later defined sadism as: "The experience of sexual, pleasurable sensations including orgasm produced by acts of cruelty, bodily punishment afflicted on one's person or when witnessed in others, be they animals or human beings.
It may also consist of an innate desire to humiliate, hurt, wound or even destroy others in order, thereby, to create sexual pleasure in one self".
This kind of sexual sadism has appeared in the literature Kraft-Ebing, One of the writers that written about sexual sadism in a novel is Stieg Larsson.
The novel was released to great acclaim in Sweden and later, on its publication in many other European countries. In the original language, it won Sweden's Glass Key Award in for best crime novel of the year. The novel received mixed reviews from American critics. In a review for The New York Times upon the book's September publication in the United States, Alex Berenson wrote, "The novel offers a thoroughly ugly view of human nature"; while it "opens with an intriguing mystery" and the "middle section of Girl is a treat, the rest of the novel doesn't quite measure up.
The book's original Swedish title was Men Who Hate Women, a label that just about captures the subtlety of the novel's sexual politics. The writing is not beautiful, clipped at times though that could be the translation by Reg Keeland and with a few too many falsely dramatic endings to sections or chapters. But it is a compelling, well-woven tale that succeeds in transporting the reader to rural Sweden for a good crime story.
Personality derives from the Latin word persona, which refers to a mask used by actors in a play. The character is easy to see how persona came to refer to outward appearance, the public face we display to the people around us.
The direct influences of sexuality on personality comes from the effects of sex hormones. It influences body build, body functioning, and the quality of the individual behaviour.
The indirect influence comes up from three sources: the effect of cultural influences sex drive, the attitudes of significant people and their treatment to the individual caused by sexuality, also the molding of personality pattern of sex appropriatenes, which admitted by society. To understand the aspect of psychology within literary work, needed psychology of literature, it is used to investigate the psychology aspect, which shown by the character within the novel The Girl with Dragon Tattoo by Stieg Larsso.
Wellek and Werren 81 stated psychology of literature, mean the psychological study of the writer as type and as individual, or the study or creative process, or the study of the psychological types and laws present within works of literature, or, finally, the effects literature upon its readers audience psychology.
He says that part of our personality is formed on the basis of the unique relationships we have as children with various people and objects. Accordingly we develop a personal set of character attributes, a consistent pattern of behavior that defines each of us as an individual Shannon, Grossman states the psychological effects trauma, wheteher in infancy or adult life, are best understood in connection with the development and functioning of the capacity to fantasize.
Here, a child which has been experienced physical and psychological trauma can build a fantasy refers to the violence. Violence can be in the form of hitting, slamming, humiliating, and so on. This kind of fantasy can cause sexual sadism behaviour. In accordance of background study above, it can be simplify to discuss among two problems that emerge as significant concern toward this novel. This study will uses two theories which are in line with the statement of the problems.

The additions will be added and got along with the analysis such as appendix, which consists of the biography of the author of this novel, and the synopsis of the novel.
Those additions are to be the closing of this study. The thesis is regarded as a descriptive-qualitative study and uses a library research.

The references are taken from library and contributing ideas about this study from internet that support the idea of analyzing. The analysis is done by the following steps: 1 Classification based on the statement of the problems.
This classification is used to avoid the broad discussion. There are two classifications in this study.
Sexual sadism happened when she has an interview with Bjurman just after he became her guardian. Bjurman, on the other hand is recognize as a person who likes to do sex by sentence that is written in the novel. Salander is uncomfortable with Bjurman question and she feels that it is not her business by asking about sex in some kind of an interview. She left his office with a feeling of disgust.
Larsson, The statement that Bjurman has no business with Salander sexual background, even he asks her impolitely. His authority is all about Salander legal powers, no more than that. Salander, moreover, express her disgust feeling to him after she feels that Bjurman was going too far.
Salander thinks that it is not his right to ask her those questions.
Then, she has been decided that she does not like Bjurman by leaving his office. The sex that is done by Bjurman is not like the sadist thing that he will do to Salander. He does some enjoyable acts to make Salander comfortable and feel horney.
The nice thing is also given to her so she enjoyed the sex because Bjurman has a plan to have a sex with her again. The sex act done by Bjurman can be seen in quote below. He stood behind her. Suddenly he was massaging the back of her neck, and he let one hand slide from her left shoulder across her breasts. He put his hand over her right breast and left it there. When she did not seem to object, he squeezed her breast. Salander did not move.
She could feel his breath on her neck as she studied the letter opener on his desk; she could reach it with her free hand Larsson, The incident happened when Salander comes to Bjurman office ask money to download new computer, since her old laptop broken caused by an accident. She does not get the money easily because Bjurman forces her to do something.
Bjurman assaults her by touching her breast. The quotation shows that Bjurman sexual sadism her by touching and squeezing her breasts. This is the one of sexual part that shows from the novel. Salander did nothing with all what Bjurman has already done to her. She got one lesson from Holger Palmgren that when there was an impulsive actions led to trouble, and trouble could have unpleasant consequences. Salander will never do anything without first weighing the consequences. In that quotation stated Salander feeling towards Bjurman.
She has plan to use the letter opener as th weapon to fight againts him. Sexual sadism has formed her to be a person not easy to back down, she would always take revenge to all forms of act that try to hurt her. However, her status limits her to do that. Even, Salander cannot do something because she needs the money. All that she thinks is about the consequences.
Bjurman starts to say what adult usually says which one another are known what the conversation means is. Larsson, Salander just fixed her gaze on the letter opener for several seconds before she stood up and went over to him.
In her heart, she says, consequences. It means that she knows the consequences by having such a lawyer guardian. The real acts that lead to sex activity are shown by Bjurman. The statement is explained bellow. He took her hand and pressed it to his crotch. She could feel his genitals through the dark gabardine trousers.
Larsson, It is shown that Bjurman rapes to her. In this case, he forces to suck his genital or can be called as oral sex. At the time she is just thinking that she did it for the money. In this case, Bjurman makes it difficulty to Salander in getting her money. Would you like that? She said nothing if Bjurman only gives words in order to treat Salander, without caring with Salander answer about his question, he continues the sex to Salander.
He waited until she lowered her eyes, in what he regarded as submission. Then he pulled her closer. Salander opened her lips and took him in her mouth. He kept his grip on her neck and pulled her fiercely towards him.
She felt like gagging the whole ten minutes he took to bump and grind; when finally he came, he was holding her so tight she could hardly breathe. Larsson, From the quotation above, it is clearly stated how Salander is forced to suck her guardian genital.
Salander passively action towards those kinds of sadism makes Bjurman thinks more to hurt her. The additional terrifying expression is shown by Salander in the quotation bellow.
She realized with terrifying clarity that she was out of her depth.
It makes Salander in dead feeling. She thinks that Bjurman is doing something so serious and injury. What can help Salander this time is only keeping the pain that she gets? In another situation Bjurman turn mad and crazy.
By taking metal stuffs that Salander hear from the sound of the clanking. The clanking sound of metal shows that Bjurman begins to do the sexual sadism, beside he says the words to treat Salander. She only does what Bjurman wants and the only thing that she can feel is sick and gets more pain by Bjurman.
Bjurman do not stop his act to Salander. The more Salander keep silence, the more he maltreats her. Anal sex is the act of sexual by putting something in someone anus.
He also starts the sadism acts along sexual activity. The quotation below shows his sadist act that Bjurman does to Salander. Salander opened her mouth to scream. He grabbed her hair and stuffed the knickers in her mouth. She felt him putting something around her ankles, spread her legs apart and tie them so that she was lying there completely vulnerable. She heard him moving around the room but she could not trough the T-shirt around her face. It took him several minutes.
She could hardly breathe. Then she felt an excruciating pain as he forced something up her anus. Larsson, The using of metal stuffs are cannot be tolerated anymore.
