IT has become a hit film starring Daniel Craig and Rooney Mara (above) and has even been nominated for five Academy Awards.
So it bodes well for Gibraltar that the so-called ‘Girl With the Dragon Tattoo’ chooses the Rock as her ideal escape at the end of the massive selling Millenium trilogy by Stieg Larsson.
In the final part of the trilogy Lisbeth Salander jumps on an early morning flight to Malaga before taking a taxi straight to the enclave, ‘a place that is not like anywhere else’.
While there she meets a Financial Times-reading German businessman at the Rock hotel and spends time with her secretly gay lawyer Jeremy Stuart MacMillan, who is administering her huge multi-million euro fortune from his small back street office.
She even manages to feed the Barbary apes and go on an all-day bender starting at Harry’s Bar.
An extremely positive end to the third of the trilogy of books The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet’s Nest, the book paints a strong and vivid picture of the place.
And, as there are already plans to turn the remaining two books into films then the Rock can be expecting some high profile visitors at some point soon.
