Actors: Michael Nykvist, Noomi Rapace
Nordic noir at its finest: Mikael Blomkvist is a determined journalist who always seeks the truth - that fact gets him in trouble, when he uses means around the law to reach it. Meanwhile, a young troubled woman, Lisbeth Salander, works at a security firm - on a side note she's the ultimate hacker, that would even best Mr. Robot! Through circumstances Salander and Blomkvist meet and work on a case together - Harriet has disappeared, but her uncle keeps receiving the usual flowers yearly... What only shows as a disappearance at first, quickly shows a dangerous and violent pattern. Salander and Blomkvist must hunt a serial killer...!
As the trilogy moves on, we dive into the darkness of Lisbeth's past - her father was an agent of the KGB, and their might be some extreme blasts from the past delving up in little old Sweden!!
I love Lisbeth Salander! She's one of my all-time favorite characters. Her bad-ass level is on the same level as Beatrix from Kill Bill. She's a strong independent loner, who has her own morals, and who hacks herself to unbound riches! The ultimate anti-hero.
This is a trilogy of films, but I recommend reading the books by Stieg Larsson first. They are an amazing read, and much better than the films, however, the three films portray the characters honestly, and Noomi Rapace nails it as Salander... absolutely nails it! I watched the TV-miniseries, which features extended scenes from the three films, so choose that if you can 👍
You will never forget the tranquil awesomeness and badassery of Lisbeth Salander... ever!! Favorite aspects: the fact that Salander is a genius but seriously doesn't care - She has memory on savant level.
