Hollywood comes to Sweden

Following the storming success of Steig Larsson’s Millennium trilogy of books last year, Hollywood has arrived in Sweden to make a new film of the first book, The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo.

The Swedish version of the film was released earlier this year to huge critical acclaim, taking more than $100 million in Europe and the Hollywood version is set to follow suit. Daniel Craig has been confirmed for the role of Mikael and newcomer Rooney Mara will play Lisbeth.

Fans can delve further into Steig Larsson’s world with a guided tour of historical Stockholm taking in the key points of reference from his book, or buy the Millennium map from the city museum and explore the city at their own pace.
