As far as this week's inspiration goes, I should clarify that I haven't seen the new movie yet. John and I are hopefully going tomorrow (thank you, Grandma, for the free babysitting!). I read The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo for book club last year, and to be honest it wasn't my favorite book. I think Lisbeth Salander is a fascinating character, but I was left wanting more of her. That's one of the things I'm most looking forward to in the American film version (I'm almost finished with the third Swedish film): unlike the Swedish films, which are apparently quite true to the novels, the American film explores Lisbeth's character in further detail. To which I say: bring it on! Talk about a badass female character!

I hope you all have a very happy holiday weekend! In the meantime, here's a little something to tide you over until Monday.
