She looked perfect, like a porcelain fairy -- except for the blood on her shoulders. It fell from the sky, she told the police.

Summary
"Before Lisbeth Salander, there was Kathy Mallory. The little girl appeared in Central Park: red-haired, blue-eyed, smiling, perfect-except for the blood on her shoulder. It fell from the sky, she said, while she was looking for her uncle, who turned into a tree. Poor child, people thought -- until they found the body in the tree. For Mallory, newly returned to the Special Crimes Unit after three months' lost time, this girl will lead her to a story of extraordinary crimes: murders stretching back fifteen years, blackmail and complicity and a particular cruelty that only someone with Mallory's history could fully recognize."--
