In the discussion at St Stefans after Zalachenko has been killed, Peter Teleborian is told that it is vital that Lisbeth is convicted of shooting Zalachenko. Yet she didn't shoot him at all - neither where they were both found and taken to hospital and certainly not at the hospital; she attacked him with an axe and took his gun, but did not shoot him. The statement should have been that it is vital that Lisbeth is re-committed. See more »
Perspective: I am 25, Danish (thus understanding Swedish) and have not read the books.
The final movie covering Stieg Larssons Millennium trilogy ties all the pieces together and explains the deeper reasons for Lisbeth Salanders unreasonable treatment by society.
Compared to its predecessors, I found the first movie highly gripping for its unique roughness and interesting characters, while the sequel didn't really catch me due to a plain storyline and little creativity. This movie however is back on track, keeping a good pace of events and complexity.
If you have already followed Salander and Blomkvist during the previous books/movies, you will surely enjoy watching how the conspiracy is being unraveled through intense investigations and court trials. You will experience how the opposition crumble beneath Salander and Blomkvists combined efforts at exposing and confronting the deeper reasons for Salanders struggles, and how they piece the puzzle together to clear her name and taking down the shady factions of society.
The movie has a nice level of well thought out detail, but also a several logical breaches. You leave the cinema with a feeling of wanting to know much more about how the initial conspiracy evolved and how parts of the investigation (not involving the key characters) is carried out. This is likely due to the dept of Stieg Larssons books, being impossible to portrait in just 150 swift minutes. This may eventually be a teaser lurking me into reading the books.
