About the Film

In this last installment of Steig Larsson's 'Dragon Tattoo Trilogy', Lisbeth Salander (Noomi Rapace) lies in critical condition, a bullet wound to her head, in the intensive care unit of a Swedish city hospital. She’s fighting for her life in more ways than one: if and when she recovers, she’ll be taken back to Stockholm to stand trial for three murders. With the help of her friend, journalist Mikael Blomkvist (Michael Nyqvist), she will not only have to prove her innocence, but also identify and denounce those in authority who have allowed the vulnerable, like herself, to suffer abuse and violence. And, on her own, she will plot revenge – against the man who tried to kill her, and the corrupt government institutions that very nearly destroyed her life.

Reactions

"A rousing, grueling, almost operatically scaled finale to the series." - Salon.com

"The movie features a great finish, where three movies’ worth of subplots and characters dovetail into a breathtaking climax and final confrontation that is positively soul satisfying." - The Hollywood Reporter

Detailed Film Info

'The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet's Nest' is the third and final film adaptation of the best-selling Millennium trilogy written by the late Swedish author, Stieg Larsson ('The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo' and 'The Girl Who Played With Fire'). In this last installment, Lisbeth Salander (Noomi Rapace) lies in critical condition, a bullet wound to her head, in the intensive care unit of a Swedish city hospital. She’s fighting for her life in more ways than one: if and when she recovers, she’ll be taken back to Stockholm to stand trial for three murders. With the help of her friend, journalist Mikael Blomkvist (Michael Nyqvist), she will not only have to prove her innocence, but also identify and denounce those in authority who have allowed the vulnerable, like herself, to suffer abuse and violence. And, on her own, she will plot revenge – against the man who tried to kill her, and the corrupt government institutions that very nearly destroyed her life. The Girl Who Kicked The Hornet's Nest brings back Noomi Rapace in the starring role of the pierced and tattooed genius computer hacker Lisbeth Salander, Michael Nyqvist as Mikael Blomkvist, the crusading journalist and publisher of the magazine Millennium, and Lena Endre (Erika Berger) the editor of the magazine and Blomkvist’s occasional lover.
