No 3 Now. First the book, hard work but excellent. Then the Swedish film, very good, captured the feel of the book but had to leave a lot out. Lisbeth was spot on accurate. Last night, the Hollywood version. Well I had expected a glitzy abomination glamorised for Yank consumption. I was very wrong. It was almost identical to the Swedish version but with different actors. Christopher Plummer put on one of his best performances. Daniel Craig was there for the name, no attempt at a Swedish accent, but a decent performance. Lisbeth was softened and rounded from the book and first film. If I hadn't seen the Swedish film I'd have said she made a very good stab at the book but the Swedish actress beat her. The big surprise was overt sex bordering on soft porn. Swedish films, sexy, right ? Wrong, Hollywood seems to have wanted an edge over Sweden so we got full on naked copulation ( that's shagging to you at the back ). Mr Bond did rather better than he normally does. Maybe he did this for no fee. I would. For what it's worth, in my humble opinion, based on the book, the Swedish film wins, just, but Hollywood came a very very close second. Photo finish.
