Popspotting #176: “The 2009 Girl with the Dragon Tattoo” (Dec. 12, 2011)
As excited as we are to see David Fincher’s adaptation of “The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo,” we know the Swedes did it first. Before seeing what Daniel Craig and Rooney Mara do with Stieg Larsson’s international bestseller, we decided to take in Niels Arden Oplev’s interpretation, starring Mikael Blomkvist and Noomi Rapace. Although we’ve not read the books (we plan to!), we were curious whether the well-received Swedish version leaves any room for an American remake.

I think you’ve made mistake here. The actor’s name is Michael Nyqvist. He plays the character Mikael Blomkvist.
Gah. You’re right, Sacha. I quickly got the actor’s name and the character’s name reversed. But hopefully it was clear I was commenting on Nykvist when I said Blomkvist! Sorry for the error!
No worries. Haven’t had a chance to listen to the show. I just noticed the mistake on the blog. Damn those Swedes and their names that all sound/look the same. 🙂
