the girl who played with fire

We went to see this at the Academy last night:


Truthfully I liked the first better: more suspense, more believable story. Not to say this film wasn't enjoyable or interesting. However, watching this one I learned that no matter where you are in Sweden, there's a TV on showing the news, and the news is always (1) exactly what's going on right now across town and (2) of crucial importance to your life at precisely that moment.

Also, there is hot girl-girl action, some pretty cool fight scenes, and IKEA.

The third book is already a movie? To clarify, we did not see the American version, I'm not sure why Tim chose this poster.

Heh - because I didn't know there was an American version of the film. I thought what I grabbed was the poster for the American release of the Swedish original.

Fixed.

Which case do you mean? It seemed to me that the entirety of the plot was about the case in the story.

Well, I haven't read the books, but I understand she's the protagonist in all three, and I assume in the films as well.

Fair enough, but now your earlier comment seems to be saying that the second film is weak because it doesn't involve the plot of the third.

Kind of but not really. To say a film is weak because it doesn't involve the plot of another film doesn't critique it on its own terms. The comparison doesn't mean anything unless I've seen the other film.
