The role of Ronald Niederman is played by Micke Spreitz. Spreitz got the part after the filmmakers' original choice Dolph Lundgren turned the role down. If Lundgren had taken the part it would have been his first role in his native country, Sweden. See more »
When Lisbeth goes to Bjurman's house, where she is confronted by two thugs, the surrounding area is lush and green, suggesting late spring/summer.

This film continues where "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo" left off. I have to say that personally, I do not really understand the bad reviews, though I must also admit I have not read the books yet, so I am not comparing it to the book, I am simply viewing it as a film in it's own right, and perhaps my review is therefore more generous than it would be if I had read the book too.
I personally thought this movie was riveting, but for different reasons than the first. Firstly, there is a lot of action in this film, I feel it was done well, and it kept the film exciting. Secondly, the depths into Lisbeth's past were also revealed very well. If you didn't learn that Lisbeth is untimately very sensitive behind her "cold" exterior, you learn it from this film.
Yes, certain scenes could have been better shot, better directed etc, but these are minor drawbacks. I feel this is again a must-see, and a very good bridge to the conclusion of this millennium trilogy.
