Socialist Worker

The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo

First came Stieg Larsson’s trilogy of books. Then came Niels Arden Oplev’s Swedish film adaptations.

Daniel Craig steps into the shoes of journalist Mikael Blomkvist. But the real lead here is computer hacker Lisbeth Salander, played by Rooney Mara.

This isn’t a vital addition to the series. Oplev’s trilogy of films did the job well. But if you’ve yet to read the books, do that first.
