Lisbeth Salander can handle a lot. She’s been to hell and back, and attacks without prejudice. But now, the ever-mutating righter of wrongs, currently wearing a Claire Foy skin mask, is up against something that may well crush her: a franchise.
The Girl In The Spider’s Web is very much the further adventures of Lisbeth Salander, adapted from the 2015 book written by David Lagercrantz following original author Stieg Larsson’s death. The previous cinematic takes on her misadventures — the original Swedish trilogy, a classical crime thriller starring Noomi Rapace, and 2011’s sublimely cold David Fincher piece, starring Rooney Mara — were completely different interpretations with distinctive character. Fede Álvarez, who lent horrific atmospherics to the 2013 Evil Dead remake and directed 2016’s claustrophobic Don’t Breathe has again left-turned. Yet so much of what unfolds is nothing new. Criminally, at Lisbeth’s expense, it’s played safe.
