Millenium wins again

Very pleased Scandinavians

Once again, Stieg Larsson's multi-facetted universe is center of attention. Last night at the International Emmy Awards where Swedish Television's (SVT) version of the Millenium saga won the award for best mini-series.

The nine hours worth of justice being restored is an extended version of the three movies based upon Larsson's trilogy. As much of the plot was of course omitted from the screenplay, fans of the novels will find much more background and insight into the main characters in the series.

The series is directed by Niels Arden Oplev (DK) and Daniel Alfredson (SE). Screenplay written by Rasmus Heisterberg, Nicolaj Arcel (DK), Jonas Frykberg and Ulf Rydberg (SE).

The 39th International Emmy Awards Gala took place on Monday, November 21, 2011 at the Hilton Hotel, New York, and was hosted by actor Jason Priestley.

The International Academy presented ten program Emmy Awards and two special awards in front of an international audience of over 1,000 entertainment professionals and media executives. Winners spanned 6 countries: Chile (first time) Belgium, Canada, Portugal, Sweden and The United Kingdom.
