Adapted from the novel The Girl Who Played with Fire by Stieg Larsson, The Girl Who Played with Fire (Swedish-language version, DVD) features Lisbeth Salander (Noomi Rapace) as a wanted woman.
A researcher and a Millennium journalist about to expose the truth about the sex trade in Sweden are brutally murdered, and Salander's prints are on the weapon. Her history of unpredictable and violent behavior makes her an official danger to society. Mikael Bloomkvist (Michael Nyqvist), Salander's friend and Millennium's publisher, is alone in his belief of Salander's innocence.
Digging deeper Bloomkvist unearths evidence implicating highly placed members of Swedish Society -- as well as shocking details about Salander's past. He is desperate to get to her before she is cornered -- but no one can find her anywhere.
The Girl Who Played with Fire runs 129 minutes and is rated R.
Also available: The Girl Who Played with Fire (Swedish-language version, Blu-ray disc).
Sony's Columbia Pictures has acquired the English-language film rights to the Millennium trilogy, with production underway for the adaptation of the first book in the series, The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, starring Daniel Craig and Rooney Mara.
