I was not too impressed with the Swedish movies, except for one thing - Noomi Rapace. Her performance was some of the finest acting i have seen in a long time. And now she is replaced with some hollywood-bimbo.


Granted, I watched the movies with some bias, as I do not like the books, and was quite annoyed with the hype. So maybe the movies are better than my gut told me they were.
