What do you do when you're shooting a Scandinavian regional TV series, only to suddenly discover that the production needs to work as a set of internationally-distributed full-length feature films? This is the puzzle that Swedish directors Niels Arden Opleu -- and more recently, Daniel Alfredson -- faced when working on their adaptations of author Stieg Larsson's 'Millennium' trilogy. Before anyone could say 'That's a wrap!', the late author's books became worldwide best sellers, and shooting plans had to change... drastically.

"It was extremely odd and complicated," admits Alfredson, on the phone from Stockholm. Alfredson is the director of the trilogy's final two installments, 'The Girl Who Played With Fire' and 'The Girl Who Kicked The Hornet's Nest,' both of which follow the critically-acclaimed 'The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo,' which was released earlier this year.
