Film Review: Luftslottet som sprängdes / The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet’s Nest (2009)

The Millenium trilogy is one of the best film series of the late 2000’s, and some of the best Swedish films ever. This is definitely the best of the three films, perfectly balancing on a line between overdone and realistic violence, between epically grande and simply too long. It’s just magnificent, although I keep feeling Noomi Rapace’s character to be somewhat overdone, constantly varying between being herself and actually trying to upset in the sense of an emo kid. I know what they are grabbing for, and I know how hard it is to pull off, but sometimes it’s too much (and I definitely think this is more of a script fault than Rapace’s talents).
