I can't see any mention of this, so I'll start. Having read the books and seen the three Swedish films (in both short and extended forms), I was unhappy when I saw that Hollywood was going to remake them, even with Daniel Craig as Blomqvist (I could imagine him in the role). I confess to being agreeably surprised by the whole thing. The Swedish atmosphere is nicely captured (I was glad they didn't try to transplant it to California, or somewhere like that). In general, it sticks faithfully to the book, gory bits, rape scenes and all (I thought it would be toned down for US audiences), although it does modify the plot somewhat for no good reason (Blomqvist acquires a teenage daughter). Rooney Mara makes a reasonable fist of Lisbeth Salander, a role that Noomi Rapace made her own. So, while I stil prefer the Swedish film, this was still worth seeing, and I look forward to the rest of the trilogy. Part of me hopes that they will modify the plot of the second book/film, so that it is somewhat more believeable.
