I do always find that information vaguely disturbing, because I can't
imagine the book being something I would enjoy re-reading if Ginny HAD
managed to kill the Ogre, because he's just not built up as someone for
whose death I can be happy. Turned into a pink fluffy football, maybe,
but not killed.
