Entertaining enough, though a bit more heavy handed with less focus on the mystery than its foreign counterpart. If you have the choice, see the Swedish one.
Though it’s nice to see Swedish things being mistaken as being from some other Nordic country for change, and not the other way around, the original movie and books are actually Swedish.
That's what I originally thought too, but I had read that it was Dutch somewhere. *shrug* I just edited it to say "Swedish".
Your original said “Danish”, not Dutch. Are you all right? ;^)
Don’t worry, in a couple of decades it’ll be just a single country and you won’t have to deal with this nonsense.
The director of the Swedish adaptation is Danish, and so are both of its writers... probably explains the confusion.
The confusion is in saying that the original version is better.
I'm not confused about that at all, the Swedish one is just a superior movie :)
I agree that the first of the three Swedish films is likely superior, but the second and third are quite terrible. Only reason I'd recommend this over the original — because it's a safer bet that Finch's trilogy will be better overall.
