Stieg Larsson, The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo: The Film
Brilliant screenplay. We watched the film this evening, Swedish with English subtitles (and after a while your ear adapts and you're half getting the Swedish too). Lots of great choices in which material was immaculately reproduced in the film version and which bits were cut. We've already decided we'll purchase the DVD when it's available.
This has to be one of very few occasions when the film actually complements the book.
