Well it's been a couple years since you've posted so your probably over it now, hopefully! Anyways, I am obsessed with Lisbeth Salander (actually the Swedish version, Noomi Rapace).
I am thinking it might have to do with my past experiences (abuse as a child) and connection with the character. Well, I am a mom of 4 children and divorced a couple yrs ago, have a bf now. I feel very similar like I want to be with her in a relationship but I don't know if it's sexual although I do think she's super attractive. I have been feeling really depressed too, like I'm sad that I'll never get to meet her. Anyways, glad to know I'm not the only one who has felt this way. Did you have any kind of experiences that may have led you to feel connected with her character or anything?
