Hosted by Stephen Schaefer
Originally aired 3/19/10
The first in Stieg Larsson's Millenium Trilogy, The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo is a crime novel set in Larsson's native Sweden, one teeming with neo-Nazis, serial killers and an astounding punk heroine named Lisbeth Salander, she of the dragon tattoo. The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo has been made into the most successful Swedish film of all time, beating the inevitable Hollywood version to the punch. Stephen Schaefer speaks with the film's Danish director Niels Arden Oplev and Swedish actress Noomi Rapace, whose star-making performance as Lisbeth is being compared to Vivien Leigh and Scarlett O'Hara (28 minutes).
