Stieg Larsson's "Millennium Series"

Updated on June 9, 2013

Millennium Series

So all I can say is, wow to this trilogy. Noomi Rapace plays her role beautifully as an emotional void woman who’s life has been forever changed by the actions of others. Michael Nyqvist plays Mickael, the leading man who is submissive to Noomi’s role, but who makes everything possible. The relationship never really begins before it ends and he in particular cannot forget her. Very strong female character with a balancing in the background lead male role. These movies will keep you at the edge or your seat and not just to read the damn English sub titles. But I will say it was worth the light reading involved, the beginning of the second, The Girl Who Plays With Fire, they start off in English for brief moments giving you the hope of an English movie, but alas it will hold true to the First one and have it all in Sweden.

The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo

The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo is the first in the trilogy of movies based on the novels by Stieg Larsson. In the beginning of the movie, it starts as if the main story will be with the reporter, Mickael and his quest to find a rich dying man’s relative. Soon in to it though, you realize the bigger story is in unraveling the mysteries which lie in the girl with dark hair, piercing and a very big tattoo on her back, Lisbeth. There are some moments of great passion and moments of forced twisted sodomy, so this is not for the faint at heart. I found the whole movie tied in well together and left you guessing till the end.

The Girl Who Played With Fire/The Girl Who Kicked The Hornets Nest

The Girl Who Plays With Fire and The Girl Who Kicked The Hornet Nest are the second and third movies in the Millennium series and they really are one movie that was far too long so it was cut in half. There is less of an in your face feel to these two movies. Once again there is a stream of murders that really should take the main plot but again, Lisbeth’s intrigue and mystery dominate your thoughts. The romantic at heart was hoping for more romance aspects however I loved these movies nonetheless. You will root her on till the ending moments. Well done!
