Salander was not like any normal person. 
An ordinary person might have felt that her lack of reaction had shifted the blame to her- it might have been another sign that she was so abnormal that even rape could evoke no adequate emotional response.
In her world, this was the natural order of things. As a girl she was legal prey, especially if she was dressed in a worn black leather jacket and had pierced eyebrows, tattoos and zero social status.
There was no point whimpering about it.

For the first time in her life Salander felt a strong need to ask someone for advice. The problem was that asking for advice meant that she would have to confide in someone, which in turn would mean revealing her secrets. Who should she tell? She was simply not very good at establishing contact with other people.

The world of literature is a man`s world.
Men are the ones who write.
Men are the ones written about.
Not many female characters have left a mark as strong as the character of Lisbeth Salander.
The layering and the development of her character throughout The Millennium Trilogy builds her up into something much bigger than Hollywood`s flavor of the week.
The story of Lisbeth Salander is the type of story which has to be read and not just seen on the screen...
