You'd think there's nothing worse than build-up without climax. Except there is - a build-down without climax - the senile breed of story that seem to start somewhere and meander to nowhere.

The final Swedish film adaptation of the Millennium Trilogy by author Steig Larsson, The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet's Nest suffers from the same disability, limping anemically to anti-climax for around two hours of its 148-minute length. It's a gorgeously rendered double-stuff serving of denouement.

Lack of a professional hand is not the problem with The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet's Nest. Daniel Alfredson, director of the trilogy's second installment, uses a Nasa-sized budget to piece together as shiny and taut a strip of film as fans might hope. »
