She's here! The eagerly awaited Swedish visitor has finally arrived. American fans of Lisbeth Salander, star of "The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo" novel – and the entire Millennium trilogy – by Swedish author Stieg Larsson have been counting the days till the Swedish film would open in the US. And now it's here.
So far, critics have – mostly – been very kind to "The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo." Here's what a few of them have to say:
The Los Angeles Times: "The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo" is "a mind-bending and mesmerizing thriller that takes its time unlocking one mystery only to uncover another, all to chilling and immensely satisfying effect."
The Washington Post: "It's the rare 2 1/2 -hour film that doesn't make you look at your watch once. 'The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo' is such a film.... like a good book, the plot is so engrossing, the characters so rich and complex, the mood of gloom mixed with glimmers of hope so all-encompassing that the thought of its actually ending never occurs to you.... For fans of the thriller genre, it's also one heck of a lot of fun."
