Män Som Hatar Kvinnor [2009]

This film is practically begging to be remade by David Fincher. I’m actually surprised he wasn’t approached in the first place, but seeing what Niels Arden Oplev has done, I’m satisfied. Still, it’ll be interesting to watch what this legendary filmmaker can contribute to the story. The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo is somewhat of a slow starter, but its great look and engaging story make it one of the best thrillers in recent years.  Dark and violent, this film also boasts a breakthrough performance by Noomi Rapace. She’s stellar as flawed heroine Lisbeth Salander and receives great support from Michael Nyvqist and Peter Haber.
