If you in the mood for a dark Swedish thriller or two, Time and Space Limited in Hudson is showing the The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo and its sequel, The Girl Who Played With Fire, films based on the first two books of Steig Larsson’s best-selling Millenium Trilogy.
Here’s the synopsis of the first film:
Forty years ago Harriet Vanger disappeared from a family gathering on the island inhabited by the powerful Vanger clan. Her body was never found, but her beloved uncle is convinced it was murder and that the killer is a member of his own dysfunctional family. He employs disgraced financial journalist Mikael Blomkvist and the tattooed and troubled but resourceful computer hacker Lisbeth Salander to investigate what becomes a search that leads to the dark underside of Swedish society.
Both films are in Swedish with English subtitles and are rated “R” for some rather disturbing violence. Trailers and showtimes after the jump.
