I became a huge fan of Steig Larsson after reading the Millennium Trilogy. His death is a great loss to all readers worldwide who have discovered this trilogy and the unforgettable character Lisbeth Salander.

So it was with great excitement that I discovered that the first book in the trilogy was made into a movie by the swedish filmaker "Neils Arden Oplev". And what a movie! Mind you, there were no english subtitles, but having read the book I was able to follow the story line very easily. As with any books that are made into film, sacrafices were made and some characters were overlooked but the essence of the book was kept intact. No new characters were introduced nor was the story line changed as is the wont of many Hollywood producers that bring to the big screen books that are much loved by readers. Oplev's adaptation did not disappoint.

The two main actors "Michael Nyqvist's Michael Blombkvist and Noomi Rapace's Lisbeth Salander were outstanding. These actor's captured the characters perfectly as described in the book but Noomi Rapace's Lisbeth Salander is outstanding. She made Lisbeth dark and broody, strong yet fragile and capable of the most hideous revenge. She is anti social, abused by a social system that is supposed to protect her yet Lisbeth Salander is the most original heroine to emerge in crime fiction for many years. I am an avid reader and have not come across a character quite like her in crime fiction or any fiction for that matter and Noomi Rapace did her proud!!!!

The film's landscape is beautifully filmed and had me mesmerised. There is a scene that is supposedly in Australia but Oplev failed to capture Australia's outback as it really is.

The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo (a.k.a. Men Who Hate Women)

"Män som hatar kvinnor" (Swedish for "Men who hate women," renamed in the English translation as The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo) is an award-winning novel by the late Swedish author and journalist Stieg Larsson, the first in his "Millennium Trilogy."

A middle-aged journalist, Mikael Blomkvist, publishes the magazine Millennium in Stockholm. He is hired one day by Henrik Vanger, the aged former CEO of a group of companies owned by a wealthy dynasty, in order to chronicle the family history. His real mission, however, is to solve a cold case - the disappearance, some forty years previously, of Vanger's great-niece when she was sixteen. Blomkvist encounters "the old Miss Marple closed-room scenario" with all the wealthy suspects marooned on the family estate on an island; a village we grow familiar with, full of hostile locals peering out from behind their curtains." The real main character of the story is Lisbeth Salander, an asocial punk who has been victimized by authorities throughout her whole life. By accident she meets Blomkvist and the unlikely couple become another classic detective pair where the hunters become the hunted.

Here is a link to the original (Swedish) version of the movie: Män som hatar kvinnor [Import][Region 2 DVD]

The movie came out in Sweden in February. It will be showing in theathers throughout Europe in September 2009.

I don't know when the DVD will be out - but I will the first in line to buy it.

"Men Who Hate Women" (original title "Män som hatar kvinnor," English title also known as "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo") is the first installment of "The Millennium Trilogy," crime thriller series based on the bestselling books by late writer and journalist Stieg Larsson. The complicated story of the Swedish thriller unfolds with two strong performances from the lead. Though it contains graphic violence and gratuitous nudity, "Men Who Hate Women" looks more like a solid, old-fashioned thriller that keeps us guessing.

The 152 minute film features a middle-aged journalist Mikael Blomkvist (Michael Nyqvist) working for the monthly magazine "The Millennium." After losing a libel case, Mikael is hired by a retired billionaire Henrik Vanger (Sven-Bertil Taube), who wants him to investigate an unsolved case of a missing girl 40 years ago - 16 year-old Harriet, who suddenly disappeared when the family members gathered on the isolated Hedeby Island in 1966. Mikael enlists a help from a gifted, enigmatic computer hacker Lisbeth Salander (Noomi Rapace), and she has gone through a lot of hardships, some of which you will witness in the film.

The film takes time to introduce the main characters, and its conclusion is drawn-out a little, but as a crime mystery it delivers. The way the incongruous pair of Mikael and Lisbeth follows the clues and draw conclusions is not exactly very original, and even the clever use of photos might remind you two classics (of Antonioni and De Palma), but the film manages to keep us interested.

For the film's real strength lies in two fleshed-out characters Mikael and Lisbeth.
