"No, not really," says Sara Claesson, somewhat anticlimactically. Instead, the head of communications for the tour emphasises the appeal of Salander. "She is so 'Pippi Longstocking', a very famous character from a Swedish children's book by Astrid Lindgren," maintains Claesson. "She's obstinate, small, smart and strong."

Elle for leather: Sinéad O'Connor

Sinéad O'Connor, Queen Elizabeth Hall, London

With her combination of vulnerability and assertiveness, anger and empathy, Sinéad O'Connor makes an apt headliner for the Southbank's Women of the World Festival. Especially since, with her new album, How About I Be Me (And You Be You)?, she's operating with a rare strength and clarity of purpose, with a band flexible enough to lend light and shade to the full range of her material.

The Sketch: By jingo, 2012 is the year of true-blue bulldog spirit!

It's quite a Tory year coming up – what with the Queen's Jubilee, Boris's victory in the mayoral elections, Lord Coe's Olympics, the anniversary of the Falklands.
