Welcome to Noomi Rapace Online, your premiere web resource on the Swedish actress. Best known for her performances as Lisbeth Salander in the original "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo" film trilogy, "Prometheus" and the recent Indie hit "Lamb", Noomi Rapace has emerged as one of the most exciting European actresses of this decade. This unofficial fansite provides you with all latest news, photos, editorials and video clips on her past and present work.  Enjoy your stay and check back soon.

Everybody’s talking about Rooney Mara and her upcoming role as that chick with the tattoo that looks like a dragon. But well before Ms. Mara brought Lisbeth Salander to life, a fetching actress by the name of Noomi Rapace made the character her own in the original Swedish adaptations of the Millenium trilogy. Rapace, who is also Swedish, wasted no time in parlaying that success into some pretty big gets as far as movies are concerned. This Christmas, she’ll match wits with Robert Downey Jr. in Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows, and has already wrapped on Ridley Scott’s mysterious

Alien prequel, Prometheus. Rapace’s greatest role however, comes this month, when she stars as our brand new cover girl. Believe it. Rapace is lending her feline features to our annual New Regime issue, which is where we do what we do best: Tell you who will be shaping, bending, and defining culture in the year to come (and the years after that, we hope). This year’s portfolio of overachievers includes everyone from The Descendants break-out Shailene Woodley, to Montreal songstress Grimes, to Bushwick-based performance artist Xavier Cha. If you don’t know their names yet, that’s kind of the point. You will. Check out the issue, on newsstands now, and check back to Bbook.com for full coverage.
