Nominated for the 2011 Breakthrough Film Artist Award (Noomi Rapace) at the Central Ohio Film Critics Association, Noomi Rapace (Prometheus) returns in The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet's Nest, the third installment of the Millennium series, as Lisbeth Salander. After suffering a gunshot wound to the head, Lisbeth is placed under custody at the Sahlgrenska Hospital until her recovery for the attempted murder of her father Alexander Zalachenko who delivered the bullet wound to her head. Michael Nyqvist (Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol) stars as journalist Mikael Blomkvist who bands together with lawyer Annika Giannini to prove her innocence. Directed by Daniel Alfredson, The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet's Nest offers an intricate web of government corruption, suppression of constitutional rights, and a hare-brained plan to prove a young woman's innocence.
