The Girl Who Played With Fire [DVD] [2010] <b>DVD</b> ~ Noomi Rapace
4.0 out of 5 stars Exciting., 5 April 2014
I enjoyed this film a little more than Hornets Nest but have the same reservations. Rapace is not right IMO and the storyline underdid the computer talents of Lisbeth and Plague.

It was nevertheless an exciting film and I think got nearer to Stieg Larsson's book than the American film of the first book The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. I found the subtitles very easy to tolerate and did not interfere at all with the enjoyment.
