The American version of "The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo" hits theaters next week, but this weekend the original Lisbeth Salander is working on another mystery. Noomi Rapace, the actress who gained international acclaim in the Swedish film version of "The Millennium Trilogy," makes her English-language debut in "Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows." And that is especially impressive if you consider she didn't even speak the language just a few years ago.
