The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo
Directed by Niels Arden Oplev
Harriet Vanger disappeared 40 years ago on the island owned by her powerful family. Believing she was murdered, her uncle hires journalist Mikael Blomkvist (Michael Nyqvist) and hacker Lisbeth Salander (Noomi Rapace, PROMETHEUS) to investigate. When the duo link Harriet’s disappearance to a series of grotesque murders, they begin to unravel a dark family history. But the Vangers will stop at nothing to protect themselves. This 2009 Swedish adaptation of the first book in Stieg Larsson’s hit trilogy is a far darker take than the US remake, while Rapace makes a superb Salander.
Noomi Rapace plays Lisbeth Salander in the grisly Swedish adaptation of the beloved dark thriller.
Cast: Michael Nyqvist, Noomi Rapace, Ewa Fröling
I had previously seen the U.S. version of this film starring Daniel Craig. I had nothing to compare it against. This film was superb in every way. I plan on watching it again.
Honestly it was my first time seeing this movie. She kicks ass and is still very beautiful and sexy. I love it, my kind of movie!
For me, this one was completely ruined by casting a very well known Swedish actor in what appeared to be an inconsequential role.
Forget the US version... this is the real deal
