Män som hatar kvinnor

It’s enough to make me jump on a plane to Sweden. Now. But that would make it a fairly expensive cinema visit, so maybe not.

Lisbeth Salander-Noomi Rapace

Stieg Larsson’s The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo premiered in Swedish cinemas at the weekend, and it’s been getting glowing reviews. All I’ve got are the trailers, which make the film look tantalisingly good. Reassuringly there seems to be no UK release date, which may mean we’re in for a little bit of a wait? Grrr.

Most of the Swedes who tend to appear in films are in it. The rich old tycoon Vanger is played by Sven-Bertil Taube, who is an institution, and I believe he still lives in London. Peter Haber, the actor who usually plays Beck, is in there, too. And I do have to lay claim to having once held hands with another of the actors, but only in a very innocent sort of way. Embarrassing memory.

From what I’ve read, they plan to make the remaining two books into television films, which may or may not be a good idea. Whether they make it to the British audience faster or slower that way is anybody’s guess.
