Not only outstanding actors but casting well written well portrayed well-developed characters, and an in-depth insight into each character. Even the ending was spectacular. I must say the United States version of this not only pales in comparison but pales in every way. This version along with the following two movies in the series are just outstanding and a must see for all.
I saw the American version first, was curious to see this version to look for subtle differences. Instead, this film takes significant liberties with the original source and panders to an audience that wants EVERYTHING to be neatly wrapped up. The American film is not a remake of this film... it is instead a far more faithful interpretation of the original novel and a far superior film. I will not bother seeing the other 2 films in the Swedish trilogy, preferring to wait for the American versions.
