That’s what her visage is about. It’s not there to say, ‘You fuck with the bull, you get the horns,’ it’s to say, ‘You don’t kick a garbage can - you ignore it.’

…as we were shooting as I was going, ‘That’s the fuckin’ teasier…’ I mean, it couldn’t have been more beautiful or more menacing. There’s a Swedish proverb, which we’ll probably use for the final poster: ‘What is hidden in the snow comes forth in the thaw.’ The one that’s on there now, ‘Evil shall with evil be expelled,’ is a Swedish proverb as well. And when you start to look at Swedish proverbs and how uncompromising they are, you realise what Stieg Larsson was on about. When you’re a little kid and one of the cultural touchstones is, ‘Evil shall with evil be expelled,’ if that’s what’s under the surface, you can see where this Goth version of Pippi Longstocking came from.
