Movie Review: The Girl Who Played with Fire

The girl with the dragon tattoo is back. She's been hiding and living comfortably under an assumed identity. She returns to Sweden, but a series of murders for which she is blamed has her on the run as the police engage in a nationwide manhunt.

Lisbeth Salander enlists Mikael Blomkvist's help in tracking down the real killer. The key to the mystery is a Russian defector and spy named 'Zala' and a "blonde tank" named Niedermann, Zala's henchman who feels no pain and is very hard to kill.

The story is very convoluted so you have to pay close attention. Overall, it's not quite as good as The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, but Noomi Rapace's riveting performance (as Salander) is well worth the investment.

Also, the sex scene between Salander and Miriam Wu (her girlfriend) is hot, hot, hot!

This movie is apparently the second of the Millennium trilogy. I can't wait to see the third film!
