Alison Strachan, the binding director at Sangorski & Sutcliffe / Shepherd's, has commented on the special design of the binding: ".There was. a strong impression in my mind of Lisbet's physical appearance, which was echoed in the violence in her character as well as that shown against her by male characters in the book. The studs were a manifestation of this male/female theme and the sado-masochism of some of the male characters. The way the studs each fit into the cover of the next book, was a symbol of how the protagonists work together, their close relationship. the hand-tooled designs of each front cover were designed to echo the images of the titles and the tattoos that cover Lisbet.". This is an unique object of one of the most pre-eminent thrillers of the 21st century
