Three Dragons, Three Tattoos: a review of “The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo” (Part 2 of 2)

Should you go see the American version of The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo? I’d say yes: it’s a well-made film with decent acting and a coherent mystery plot. But I think that, to really get the full impact, you need to sit down and read the novel first (or, failing that, right after).

Part two of my review of The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo has been posted.

Please note: in this article, I discuss three scenes containing graphic sexual violence. If you think it may disturb or offend you, please don’t click.
