Noomi Rapace, I just like her a lot.

The belief that man is an irresolute creature pulled this way and that by two forces of equal strength, alternately winning and losing the battle for his soul; the conviction that human life is nothing more than an uncertain struggle between heaven and hell; the faith in two opposed entities, Satan and Christ - all this was bound to engender those internal discords in which the mind, excited by the incessant fighting, stimulated as it were by the constant promises and threats, ends up by giving in and prostitutes itself to whichever of the two combatants has been more obstinate in its pursuit. Life isn't black and white, it's gold.

Rooney Mara and not being bias cause I am a fan. She just looks really good in a creepy way.

Rapace fits more into the picture I had of Lisbeth in my head.

having not seen the english-language film, i don't know, but rapace "looks" more like lisbeth to me i think there was absolutely no need for a remake as the swedish films are perfectly good. are people really so stupid that they ignore foreign language films? seems so...

Why does that question even need to be asked? The swedish film is quite good, I don't get the remake either.

It is frustrating that more people don't see foreign language movies but just because the first one was in Swedish doesn't make it better and doesn't mean there can't be a different adaptation of the book. This is one instance where I'm perfectly fine with having a second adaptation. David Fincher is one of the best director's working today and I'm interested to see his take on the novel particularly because the tone of the story seems right up his alley.

Rapace is excellent as Salander. Mara has a high bar to clear and I dont think she made it yet (still 2 movies to go though)

In my mind Mara fits more adequately physically to portray Lisbeth.

Haven't seen the American version and I'm not really bothered. The Swedish films were really good. I own them all so I doubt I'll ever watch the American ones.
