I finally saw the Girl with the Dragon Tattoo (the Swedish version)!

Tonight, Mr. F was out of town so I FINALLY watched the Swedish version of "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo". [He's not a fan of the trilogy like I am!] The movie took all of the best parts of the book and limited the boring parts, which made it even more amazing.

WARNING: I told my Mom that this was one of my favorite books and she read it, thinking she might enjoy it too. I should have warned her that this book would not be something she'd like, at all. The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo is very graphic and disturbing and I initially put it down after the first 100 pages. I continued reading it only after a friend urged me to read more about Lisbeth's story.  Now, I love the trilogy because of her childhood and who Lisbeth becomes.
Noomi Rapace is fascinating and intensely compelling, as Lisbeth Salander. I can't wait to see her in the new Sherlock Holmes movie, where I'm sure she plays a completely different character. Lisbeth's dragon tattoo is really intense and way bigger than I pictured when I read the book. It's probably also because the British version of the book, (which was the version I read), has a smaller dragon tattoo too.

It's amazing to watch Lisbeth's transformation from a gothic, introverted creature to an intelligent, misunderstood and strange beauty. I didn't really understand how beautiful she was when I read the book. She's intriguing and powerful. I do think it's interesting that the movie chose to have Lisbeth given Mikael the Wennerstrom information instead of Henrik Vanger.

I cannot wait to see the American version of "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo" with Rooney Mara and Daniel Craig. Hopefully, my cousin Katy, will see it with me soon!
