The most popular book of the last year is now a movie! The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo is a Swedish film based on the international bestselling novel by Stieg Larsson. The film, set in Sweden in the bleak winter, is a thriller, a mystery, and includes some action. What people are drawn to most about this story is the intriguing main character, Lisbeth Salander. Lisbeth is a goth hacker, emotionally unavailable, and clearly affected by violent experiences in her past. She sticks out like a sore thumb among the conservative men in suits who populate the story. The film follows Lisbeth and Mikael, a disgraced journalist, as they are hired to solve a 40 year-old mystery. Hollywood is already planning an American remake of this intense film, which comes out on DVD on July 7.
