'The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo' review - An impeccably crafted mystery

On November 9th 2004, 50-year-old Swedish journalist Stieg Larsson died after climbing seven flights of stairs to his office and subsequently suffering a heart attack. Discovered amongst his possessions were manuscripts for three completed, unpublished novels that he had written as personal projects over a number of years. The first was printed and sold in Sweden less than one year later under the title Män som hatar kvinnor (Men Who Hate Women), and again several years later in English as “The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo”. If you haven’t been living under a rock, you’re probably aware that this novel sold spectacularly well across the globe, gave rise to two sequels, and spawned a successful trilogy of Swedish-made film adaptations.

Daniel Craig to star in The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo 

James Bond himself, Daniel Craig, will play journalist Mikael Blomkvist in the upcoming American adaptation of The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. The film is the first of a possible trilogy of films. According to Deadline, he will begin work once Cowboys and Aliens is done shooting this fall. There is no word yet on how this may affect the status of Bond 23.

If you've heard of this film recently, it's probably because it is currently in select theaters all around the world--as is The Girl Who Played with Fire--and making quite a stir. The only problem (if you see it that way) is that it's in Swedish. I haven't had the chance to see it yet, but look forward to getting it on video soon.
