ANGELIKA’S NOTE

Hospitalized Lisbeth (Noomi Rapace) awaits her murder trial, while Mikael (Michael Nyqvist) tries to establish her innocence in this third and final chapter of the trilogy from writer Stieg Larsson and director Daniel Alfredson. Rapace once again gives a standout performance, which received the win for Breakthrough Performance by New York Film Critics. "The movie features a great finish, where three movies’ worth of subplots and characters dovetail into a breathtaking climax and final confrontation that is positively soul satisfying" (Hollywood Reporter).

SYNOPSIS

In this last installment of Steig Larsson’s ‘Dragon Tattoo Trilogy’, Lisbeth Salander lies in critical condition, a bullet wound to her head, in the intensive care unit of a Swedish city hospital. She’s fighting for her life in more ways than one: if and when she recovers, she’ll be taken back to Stockholm to stand trial for three murders. With the help of her friend, journalist Mikael Blomkvist (Michael Nyqvist), she will not only have to prove her innocence, but also identify and denounce those in authority who have allowed the vulnerable, like herself, to suffer abuse and violence. And, on her own, she will plot revenge – against the man who tried to kill her, and the corrupt government institutions that very nearly destroyed her life.
