The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo

After reading the novels some time ago,  I finally got around to seeing 'The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo' this weekend.

The back-cloth is a gloomy Scandanavian landscape that oozes brooding melancholy. The heroine is an ass-kicking, ferociously clever, heavily tattooed-and-pierced punk girl who rides a motorcycle. And the hero is a principled investigative journalist on a mission to expose big business and Neo-Nazis (in fact so was the novel's author)

The plot of course is complete tosh -  but then that goes with the thriller territory. 

What's not to like?

Just finishing the third of the trilogy now. It is refreshing to have thrillers to read that are written by somebody who understands who the real criminals in society are.
