This summer 15 persons of the OUT editorial staff went to Sweden to celebrate Midsummer’s Eve and to explore why our country of less than 10 million people is so culturally relevant right now. From Robyn and the Knife to The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. The new issue of OUT lists 82 reasons to love Sweden, starting with an interview with Alexander Skarsgård, best for his role in HBO’s lusty drama True Blood. In the interview Alexander Skarsgård talks with the Swedish filmmaker, Jonas Åkerlund about the Swedish conquest of Hollywood, national differences in etiquette, and why Swedes get so much sex. Read the interview>>

Rooney Mara as Lisbeth Salander on W‘s February 2011 cover!!

 David Fincher, the darkly obsessive director of Fight Club and The Social Network, is making the Hollywood version of The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo.

In the February issue of W we get an exclusive first look from the set of the year’s most anticipated film.

Fincher’s film departs dramatically from the book: Mikael Blomkvist is more gentlemanly, Salander is more aggressive—and the ending has been completely altered. What do you think about that? And who do you think makes the better “Girl with the dragon tattoo” – Rooney Mara or Noomi Rapace?
