I loved the book and could not wait for the movie...and I have to say...AMAZING! Rooney Mara as Lisbeth was brilliant. Her transformation is incredible. To prepare for the role of Lisbeth Salander, Roonney (shown here on location in Stockholm) had her eyebrows bleached, her hair chopped, and her lip, brow, nose, and nipple pierced—all in one “very intense” day. She is tough, beautiful, dark, brave yet vulnerable.
" Fincher’s Lisbeth Salander, as channeled by Mara, is unique—a brilliant but childlike avenging angel with an understanding and an appreciation of violence." (Wmagazine)
