Flickan som lekte med elden

Daniel Alfredson Sweden, 2009

João R.'s rating of the film The Girl Who Played with Fire

It's not that it's a bad ride, but perhaps it's slightly disconnected from the first. Had it been more explorative of its characters, this could've achieved a more dramatic and dense tone. I found it somewhat dull up until Zala's identity was learned. And was I the only one who jumped near the end when Lisbeth was looking for Niedermann inside the house?! I was caught off guard.
