Went along to see the newly released movie "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo" on 
Monday. This is a Swedish production of the first of the Millennium Trilogy by 
deceased Swedish author Steig Larsson.
  Towards the end of the movie there is a brief scene set in Australia with 
sheep and mountains.Where's that I wondered, maybe the Flinders Ranges? During 
the credits at movie's end I notice reference to "Spanish sheep wrangler", so, 
OK, the scene's been filmed in Spain.
      To heighten credibility re the Australianess of the scene, there's a 
Crested Bellbird calling in the background. Fair enough, I thought-----followed 
by the faint sounds of a whipbird (Eastern I guess, though I'm not familiar 
with Western Whipbird call).Don't often hear those together.
     A very well done movie (even with some dodgy idiom. Do Swedes really say 
"knock yourself out"??)
