Luftslottet som Sprängdes [The Girl Who Kicked the Hornets’ Nest]
The third Swedish film made from Stieg Larsson’s Millennium trilogy of bestsellers, this effort, while well made, fails to live up to its forebears. Unlike its predecessors, the story lacks complexity, and it also relies too much upon knowledge of the earlier tales. Good acting and directing, and it looks nice, but hardly a must see.
