SYNOPSIS

'Niels Arden Oplev's Dragon adaptation is already a poisonous gem, in large part thanks to fearless performances and an unwaveringly graphic sensibility that doesn't flinch at the most horrific parts of Larsson's story.

Michael Nyqvist (Together) stars as a disgraced independent journalist headed for jail after a rigged libel case. When Sven-Bertil Taube, one of the heads of a wealthy family, approaches him with a lucrative job offer, Nyqvist has little choice; he's taken a leave from his paper and has nothing better to do during the six months until his sentence begins … Larsson finds a more colorful focus in Noomi Rapace, a gothy, bristling 24-year-old hacker who takes an interest in Nyqvist from afar. Dragon Tattoo gets much of its intensity from her combination of vulnerability and ferocity.' AV Club
