To Their Credit

I saw a trailer for the Swedish sequel to the big hit The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo. The novels these movies are based on, by Stieg Larsson, are gigantic bestsellers.

Still, I wasn't expecting what I saw on the credit card. Instead of the director being listed last, a notation it was based on a book by Stieg came at the end.

Perhaps they can get away with this in Sweden. In America, it's a contractual thing that the DGA has worked out that directors get the final credit.
