THE GIRL WHO KICKED THE HOR­NETS’ NEST

Pasatiempo - - Moving Images - (Jonathan Richards)

Part three of the Mil­len­nium tril­ogy picks up where the sec­ond in­stall­ment left off, with a bul­let in its hero­ine’s brain. There are shad­owy plots afoot to ter­mi­nate Lis­beth Sa­lan­der (the won­der­ful Noomi Ra­pace), while Micke Blomkvist (Michael Nyqvist) races to as­sem­ble the ev­i­dence to clear her name. Di­rec­tor Daniel Al­fred­son builds ten­sion ex­pertly, cred­it­ing his au­di­ence with the in­tel­li­gence and pa­tience to bear with him as he metic­u­lously as­sem­bles his scenes. The movie is beau­ti­fully pho­tographed by Peter Mokrosin­ski with a chilly pal­ette of grays and blues. Per­haps the best movie of the se­ries. Rated R. 148 min­utes. In Swedish with sub­ti­tles. The Screen, Santa Fe.
