David Fincher on Blomkvists Metrocity

I have to give credit where credit is due,” Fincher tells EW. “We knew we needed a moment of levity. I said, ‘He should walk over and turn on music, because he doesn’t like to kill, he doesn’t like to hear the screams, without hearing his favorite music.’ And Daniel Craig hopped up and picked up his iPod and scrolled through it and said, ‘Here it is.’ And we all almost pissed ourselves, we were laughing so hard. No, actually, it’s worse than that. He said, ‘Orinoco Flow!’ Everybody looked at each other, like, what is he talking about? And he said, ‘You know, “Sail away, sail away…”’ And I thought, this guy is going to make Blomkvist as metro as we need.
