Top 10 fictional female friends that would make good real-life friends

Panayiota Kuvetakis is a student at UC Berkeley studying comparative literature and theater. For Writer's Bloq, she named a top ten list of fictional female friends we'd like to have as anything close to real-life friends, including:
Lisbeth Salander – The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo

So…even though she ignores interaction with Blomkvist in all of book two…and though most of their conversations are through email… and despite the fact that she is very much a sociopath…Salander’s brilliance as a fellow detective and dependability as a friend is essentially the equivalent of Watson on steroids. She is the (boxing, computer-hacking-genius) peanut butter to Blomkvist’s (attractive and strong-willed) jelly, if you will. Not to mention she saves him from the clutches of a ruthless, sadomasochistic serial killer.
Read about the other entries on the list.

The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo is among Lynda Bellingham's six best books and Camilla Läckberg's top ten Swedish crime novels.
