#13 : Girl with the Dragon Tattoo

"From the International Best-Selling Trilogy"

Daniel Craig and Rooney Mara

No reviews given.

So this is the American remake of the Swedish film version of the Swedish TV version of the books by Steig Larsson that he gave to his publisher before an editor got chance to tell him which bits were completely obvious, had too much detail, or were unnecessarily violent.  I was really excited to read the first one, but was left disappointed as I couldn't decide at the time if it was badly written or poorly translated.

Anyway, the movie.  IMDB users are rating this version as an 8.2, which is surprisingly high for a SideOfABus movie, with a Metacritic of 71.  Note that the Swedish version has scores of 7.8 and 76.  The Millennium mini-series has a user score of 8.1
