Her circle of acquaintances was not large, nor did it contain any members of the sheltered middle class from the suburbs. By the time she was eighteen, [she] did not know a single girl who at some point had not been forced to perform some sort of sexual act against her will… In her world, this was the natural order of things. As a girl she was legal prey. – The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, Stieg Larsson
