On the 9th Day of Christmas…

…my true love gave to me: nine ladies dancing,

eight maids a-milking,

seven swans a-swimming,

six geese a-laying,

five golden rings,

four calling birds,

three french hens,

two turtle doves,

and a partridge in a pear tree.

Lisbeth Salander

To symbolize the gift on the ninth day of Christmas (nine ladies dancing) we selected THE girl (maybe not quite a lady) Lisbeth Salander.



Lisbeth Salander is one of the main characters in the Millennium trilogy by the late Swedish author and journalist Stieg Larsson. He imagined what Pippi Longstocking would be like as an adult, and and then he created Lisbeth.

After reading the novels I had a difficult time imagining the character in a movie. I did not think anyone could do the role justice. Two women proved me wrong. Noomi Rapace in the Swedish movies, and Rooney Mara in the American version of The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo.
