Flickan som lekte med elden (2009)

The intense follow up to The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, Lisbeth is now the tracked as she is accused of murders related to a sex trafficking ring. She keeps her ally from the first movie at an arms length as they both search for the real culprits.

The Girl Who Played with Fire continues the theme of independence, strength, and justice only to demonstrate again that none of these is completely possible, despite their ability to drive a superhero story like this one.

The movie is pretty cool because it's set in Sweden instead of New York or L.A. or London. It's also blatantly far-fetched which both adds to the intensity and kicks it down a couple notches in my mind because it's more difficult to buy in.
