Noomi Rapace is the Swedish actress playing the part of Lisbeth Salander in the Millennium movies.

Seventeen years old, she debuted on TV with the part of Lucinda Gonzales in the series "Tre Kronor". 1998 to 1999, Noomi Rapace studied at Skara Skolscen. The following years, she worked at a couple of smaller theaters in Sweden until she was engaged at Swedens two finest theaters, Stockholms stadsteater and The Royal Dramatic Theatre in 2003. Until this date, she has participated in many Swedish plays and movies.
