It’s rare that a character as rich and iconic as Lisbeth Salander comes along. It’s no wonder then that, since her debut in Steig Larsson’s book The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo in 2005, we have seen her brought to life on screen now five times in two different languages. First, there was Noomi Rapace in 2009’s Swedish adaptation. Then came Rooney Mara’s turn in David Fincher’s English-language remake—for which she was nominated for an Oscar.
