  • Determinator: One of the main traits of Dr. Elizabeth Shaw.
  • Doing It for the Art: Has been quoted as saying there needs to be more of this in cinema. Or, at least, Swedish cinema needs more of this.
  • Dyeing for Your Art: Her Lisbeth Salander role, which involved a lot of piercings (most of which she'd actually had as a teenager, so she just got them redone), and a lot of makeup to cover up her naturally dark complexion.
  • Pint-Sized Powerhouse: Just a hair over five foot four.
  • Star-Making Role: As Lisbeth; she was primarily a stage actress up to that point, but has since begun to act in big-budget Hollywood films.
