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.
Most of us have probably first seen Noomi in the spectacular “The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo”, the first in Stieg Larsson’s “Millennium” book series that was planned to feature 10 volumes, but was cut short after Larsson’s death and three and a half books. Back then, David Lagercrantz was commissioned to carry the series forward and wrote a further three volumes. Now, Karin Smirnoff, a successful journalist and novelist in her own right, has instigated a planned further trilogy. “The Girl in The Eagle’s Talons” reintroduces us to damaged hacker, and now businesswoman Salander, and her friend and occasional lover Blomkvist. The action largely takes place in Norrland County in the north of Sweden. Salander has travelled north to come to the aid of her niece Svala, whose mother has gone missing. Blomkvist, dispirited by the end, after 31 years, of his beloved print magazine ‘Millennium’, and its conversion into a podcast, is in the area because his daughter Pernilla is marrying local politician and businessman Henry Salo. The untapped natural resources of Sweden’s far north have begun to attract the attention of various multinational companies, eager to cash in. The area has become something of a new Klondyke. There are people who are not willing to leave their homes to facilitate the construction of giant wind farms and people who are not willing to accept such refusals. There have been many disappearances of young immigrant women in the area. You can read more about the book over here. As we know, Rapace’s Salander time has been finished with the film trilogy, but I think we all still enjoy a good Salander sleuthing.
