Odds are if you’re reading our site we don’t need to introduce you to Lisbeth Salander. She’s the tattooed pyromaniac from Sweden who hates flying insects.

She’s also the title character of the bestselling Millennium Trilogy of novels by Stieg Larsson, all of which have been made into blockbuster foreign language films. The first two installments introduced the troubled but brilliant Salander and a frumpy, crusading chick-magnet named Blomkvist and threw them both headlong into a brutal conspiracy filled with serial killers, government secrets, cups of coffee, and assorted men who hate women. The third and final film, The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet’s Nest, finds Salander quite literally fighting for her life and her freedom.

The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet’s Nest is hitting DVD on January 25th, and we’ve got a copy to give away to one lucky reader. The title of this post refers to Asperger’s syndrome – a diagnosis often discussed when it comes to Lisbeth Salander’s anti-social behavior. In that vein, here’s how you enter this contest… leave a comment below naming a character with issues from a film, any film, alongside a diagnosis that you think fits them best. The funnier and more creative the better. Think The Wolf Man‘s Larry Talbot, chronic masturbator…

As always the contest is open to US residents only ages 18 and up. Be sure the email address associated with your comment is correct as that’s how we’ll notify the winner. Contest ends January 25th! Good luck!

The official plot synopsis:

In this last installment of the Millennium Trilogy, Lisbeth Salander (Noomi Rapace) lies in critical condition, a bullet wound to her head, in the intensive care unit of a Swedish city hospital. She’s fighting for her life in more ways than one: if and when she recovers, she’ll be taken back to Stockholm to stand trial for three murders. With the help of her friend, journalist Mikael Blomkvist (Michael Nyqvist), she will not only have to prove her innocence, but also identify and denounce those in authority who have allowed the vulnerable, like herself, to suffer abuse and violence. And, on her own, she will plot revenge – against the man who tried to kill her, and the corrupt government institutions that very nearly destroyed her life.”
