I read the book, saw the Swedish movie and now the English one. The strength and depth of Elisabeth Slander character stands out.
I loved the Swedish version more then English version. Hollywood has relied more sexual violence and graphic sexual scenes. It falls flat… This was not needed. The investigation, suspense and Elisabeth ‘no nonsense’ character is the strength of the plot.
But it was good to watch her again. Wish the original was cast and not Rooney. And now Rooney has the Oscar nomination.
Alas the movie is not going to release in India as the Director has not agreed to the cuts. Someday maybe in the Land of Kamasutra such movies will be allowed.
