Here’s an album that is arriving at precisely the right moment – the phenomenal success of the three Stieg Larsson novels is being finessed by the much-acclaimed Scandinavian film adpatations. Silva Screen has long been a company that has done the best possible service in showcasing classic and modern film music – and here are the atmospheric, edgy scores by the talented Jacob Groth, recorded in dynamic, wide-ranging sound. Music From Stieg Larsson’s Millennium Trilogy is the soundtrack to the three Swedish films based on the publishing sensation of the last few years which have seen over 30m books sold. The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo opened in UK cinemas on March 12th (with a DVD release in July) and will be followed by The Girl Who Played With Fire (August 27th) and The Girl Who Kicked The Hornet’s Nest (November 26th). The scores by the Danish composer Jacob Groth point up the tension with impressive panache.
