From the Back Cover
To catch a criminal, can Lisbeth and Mikael be criminals themselves?
Would Aristotle read Larsson's mystery books on a beach?
Can revenge be ethical?
What's the deal with all that coffee?
Drawing a thin moral line between their own actions and the criminal schemes they seekto unravel in the international bestselling Millennium Trilogy, tattooed and troubledcomputer hacker Lisbeth Salander and disgraced middle-aged journalist Mikael Blomkvist form the most unlikely pairing of heroes in popular fictionhistoryand one of the most compelling. Drawing on some of history's greatestphilosophical minds, The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo and Philosophy gives fresh insight into the complex ethical framework of this sleuthing odd couple and the key epistemological themes driving Stieg Larsson's ingeniously plottedtales of crime and corruption in Sweden's dark underbelly. Topics such as theAristotelian arguments for why we love revenge, Kantian theories explaining why so many women sleep with Mikael Blomkvist, feminist readings of Lisbeth Salander, andLarsson's views on skepticism offer a huge helping of metaphysical morsels that will more than satisfy the intellectual appetite of devoted Larsson fans everywhere.

We still don't know the location of Blomkvist's cabin by the sea.
The book is well written and is worth a read if you enjoy philosophy. It is written so that even the uninitiated should comprehend most of the theories.
