The Swedish actress Noomi Rapace. perhaps most known for her role in The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, has a leading role in the new film Seven Sisters.

The film is about a set of identical septuplets (seven) (all played by Noomi Rapace) are hidden from the government by their grandfather, played by Antichrist star Willem Dafoe. He’s hiding them because there is a one child policy due to overpopulation. They are all named after a day of the week, and in the outside world, they assume the joint identity of Karen Settman, in a game of cat and mouse with the director of the Child Allocation Bureau (Glenn Close).

Rapace is not the only Nordic actor to be spotted; Pål Sverre Hagen from Kon-Tiki, Christian Rubeck from Nobel, and Jeppe Beck Laursen from Dead Snow and also have roles in the film. The Norwegians really do dominate!

While Dafoe looks like he is phoning it in, you can’t dislike seven Noomi Rapace’s!
