THE GIRL IN THE SPI­DER’S WEB

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - FILM REVIEWS -

(15) CLAIRE FOY plays hacker Lis­beth Sa­lan­der in this adap­ta­tion of the fourth book in Swedish au­thor Stieg Lars­son’s Mil­len­nium se­ries – which was penned by David Lager­crantz af­ter Lars­son’s death.

Com­puter sci­en­tist Frans Balder (Stephen Mer­chant) hires Lis­beth to ac­cess to the servers of the Na­tional Se­cu­rity Agency (NSA) and steal his FireFall ap­pli­ca­tion.

Lis­beth’s ac­tions Claire Foy as Lis­beth Sa­lan­der at­tract the at­ten­tion of an NSA agent (Lakeith Stan­field), who trav­els to Swe­den to bring the hacker to jus­tice. The theft is com­pli­cated when masked as­sailants storm Lis­beth’s lair and leave her for dead.

The bruised hero­ine con­tacts jour­nal­ist Mikael Blomkvist (Sver­rir Gud­na­son) who helps iden­tify the at­tack­ers.

Lis­beth fol­lows the ev­i­dence and re­alises that the bril­liant mind of Balder’s autis­tic son Au­gust (Christo­pher Con­very) is the key to crack­ing the case.
