I loved the Swedish film, subtitles and all. It took me a bit longer to really get into the book, which is what you might call a bit slow at the outset, but eventually I was hooked on that too. And now I’m anxious to see the American version of this movie, starring Daniel Craig (the latest James Bond) and relative newcomer, Rooney Mara.
Rooney plays the troubled, tough, dark, fascinating and strangely endearing character, Lisbeth Salander. Lisbeth is, to me and many others, the main draw for this story, in the book and in the Swedish film of the same name, both of which are the first of the three-part Millenium Trilogy by the late author, Steig Larsson.
Have you read the book or seen the Swedish film? If not, or even if you have and want to read my reviews and learn a bit about the two women who play Lisbeth in the films, stop by my lens about The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo.
