The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet's Nest (Luftslottet som sprängdes) (2009)

Director: Daniel Alfredson. Cast: Noomi Rapace, Michael Nyqvist, Lena Endre. 147 min. Rated R. Sweden/Denmark/Germany. Drama.

Finally, the Millenium Trilogy is over. Lisbeth Salandar wins our hearts full circle, and proves no matter how apathetic or how bizarre one's appearance, one can be a hero to sympathize with. The third episode of the trilogy is the weakest, as Lisbeth looks like Lisbeth only during the last hour, and is in action only during the last 15 minutes of this overlong movie; i.e. this episode really drags on. But maybe the anti-climactic approach is intentional, as the very rare moments Lisbeth and Mikael share a scene sparkle like a jewel. Hope the Swedes make more of these.
