great story and fantastic acting. i think i liked the swedish version a bit better but i look forward to the subsequent novels on the big screen.
i was hesitent to watch this as i really liked the original version - but i was pleasantly surprised how much i liked this film. daniel craig gave a superior performance, despite mara getting all the hype.
excellent murder mystery !!! highly recommend.
