Some very sad news today, as the family of Michael Nyqvist has confirmed the actor’s passing at age 56. Mr. Nyqvist landed his breakthrough role at age 39, playing Rolf, an abusive alcoholic husband in the 2000 film “Together.” The Swedish movie about members of a leftist commune in suburban Stockholm in the 1970s led to his first nomination for a Guldbagge, the annual cinema awards in Sweden. From there, Mr. Nyqvist was cast in leading roles on television shows and in films, including as Mikael Blomkvist, the fervent investigative reporter, in the original Swedish adaptation of the book series “The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo.” He also received bigger parts in blockbuster Hollywood movies, playing a deranged Swedish-born Russian nuclear strategist in the 2011 movie “Mission: Impossible — Ghost Protocol.” What better way to celebrate this wonderful actor’s career by re-watching the “Millennium” trilogy anytime soon. Here are some of Noomi’s and Michael’s moments together from the promotional tours of the “Dragon Tattoo” films.
