Of course, it wouldn't make sense seeing this movie without having seen the previous two. Most people in the audience would have read the books first and then seen the movie, and maybe some were even Swedish or Danish. I mean who wants to sit through 2 1/2 hours of sub-titles unless they fit into at least one of those categories. I just finished the book a week ago so everything was still fresh in my mind. If the Director would have followed the book completely then it would have had to be a 4 hour movie. Yes things were shortened or omited in order to squeeze it into 2 and a half hours. The book is more exciting with respect to the last scene between Lisbeth and Niederman, it was too tame and less convincing in the movie. The court scene was good, and basically everything was fairly accurate and by no means disappointing. There were a lot of unanswered questions left and it seems that this could continue on towards yet another episode, especially with the ending it had. It is still ripe for a continuation and I hope if that's the case that Nyqvist and Rapace and the rest of the characters continue in future episodes because it wouldn't make sense without them. I would have liked to have seen more of Figuerola; in the book things got rather more interesting. All in all it wasn't disappointing.
