The Girl Who Played With Fire
Daniel Alfredson, 2009; 129m
Based on the second installment in crime novelist Stieg Larsson’s bestselling Millennium Trilogy, this gripping follow-up to The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo finds journalist cum amateur sleuth Mikael Blomkvist reuniting with wild-child computer hacker Lisbeth Salander (Noomi Rapace, reprising her role) to investigate a suspected sex-trafficking operation. But when Lisbeth is accused of three murders, she goes on the lam, dodging shootouts and disfigured crime bosses while Blomkvist tries to clear her name. Can he do it before it’s too late? And is Lisbeth really as innocent as he thinks?
