Thompson on Hollywood

Music Box will be releasing the Swedish The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo Trilogy: Extended Edition on November 22.

The boxed set will contain more than two hours of additional footage not seen in the theatrical versions of the original Swedish films (The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, The Girl Who Played with Fire, The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet's Nest). Amassing a total of nine hours of story content and presented in six parts, this complete version of the international hit series (from the original long-form Swedish television series) restores notable characters and subplots from Stieg Larsson's best-selling novels, most significantly in the portrayal of Erika Berger (Lena Endre), the editor of Millennium magazine as well as Mikael Blomkvist's friend and occasional lover. Starring Noomi Rapace and Michael Nyqvist, Dragon Tattoo Trilogy: Extended Version will be available from all major retailers and online.
