THE GIRL WHO KICKED THE HORNET’S NEST
MIDNIGHT, SBS ★★★
Closing instalment in the classy series of Swedish thrillers adapted from Stieg Larsson’s best-selling Millennium Trilogy. Perhaps not quite as compelling as staunch fans might hope, but there are many, many loose ends to be tied up. Show a little patience and the film’s finale will still deliver. The plot picks up with renegade cyber-hacker Lisbeth Salander (Noomi Rapace) fighting back from the brink of death to exact vengeance on all of her nefarious enemies. As always, the intrepid journalist Blomkvist (Michael Nyqvist) is there to supply back-up.
