When the trilogy of "Girl With The Dragon Tattoo" came out, I purchased all three books and read them.
later I watched the Swedish Versions of all the movies with subtitles. I thought they were good. Intense, but good.
There are now English Version movies in theaters and one comment I heard was "I don't know why here in America we have to have things SO GRAPHIC!"
I listened as I heard this woman who is actually a psychologist, talk about the content being overly visible to viewers. She explained that in the Swedish movies, they gave you an idea of what happened, (particularly in the rape scene) but that they didn't show you everything!
She went on to explain that she felt it contributed to the violent fantasies of many abusers in the world, and seeing things portrayed in movies just contributes to a worse society. Not unlike the "Copy Cat" killers or rapists. etc.
