Mån som Hatar Kvinnor

The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo

(Sweden/Germany/Denmark, 2009, 151 minutes)

A disgraced investigative journalist and a troubled hacker get together to solve the mysterious disappearance of an industrialist's niece 40 years earlier. Handsome but overlong and somewhat jumbled thriller much condensed from a best-selling novel, unraveling in the last reel once the central mystery has been solved; the sort of thing Hollywood once knew how to do and now is essentially upscale cable TV fare. Not surprisingly, it was made for TV as two feature-length episodes re-edited into one big-screen feature.

A Yellow Bird presentation/production, in co-production with ZDF Enterprises, Sveriges Television, Nordisk Film and ZDF, in association with Filmpool Stockholm Mälardalen, Film i Väst and Spiltan Underhållning; with the support of the Swedish Film Institute, Nordisk Film & TV Fund and the Danish Film Institute. Starring Michael Nyqvist, Noomi Rapace, Sven-Bertil Taube, Peter Haber, Peter Andersson, Marika Lagercrantz, Ingvar Hirdwall, Ewa Fröling, Björn Granath, Lena Endre. Directed by Niels Arden Oplev; produced by Søren Stærmose; screenplay by Rasmus Heisterberg, Nikolaj Arcel, based on the novel by Stieg Larsson, The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo; music by Jacob Groth; director of photography (Nordisk Film, widescreen), Eric Kress; production designer, Niels Sejer; costume designer, Cilla Rörby; film editors, Anne Osterud, Janus Billekov Jansen.
