The 90-pound angsty heroine of 'The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo,' Lisbeth Salander, was portrayed by Noomi Rapace in the 2009 Swedish film based on Stieg Larsson's bestselling book. Now that Sony Pictures is doing a remake, set to be released in December 2011, there's been much speculation about who should be cast to play the intriguing, bisexual hacker who helps a journalist solve a 40-year-old murder mystery.

David Fincher will direct, and if his previous projects ('Se7en,' 'Fight Club' and 'Zodiac') are any indication, he won't shy away from the cold and dark nature of the book. The blogosphere has been abuzz, with fans of the late Larsson's so-called Millennium Trilogy of 'Girl' books worried that the Hollywood version will dumb down or Americanize these complex characters. But so far, the choice to cast Daniel Craig as the disgraced and charming journalist, Mikael Blomkvist, is spot-on.

Recently a slew of young actresses reportedly screen-tested opposite Craig in full costume. Here's who we think would be best suited to play the coveted role.
