Thank you for making this poll.

I don't think you need to have the whole "Girl with the Dragon Tattoo" trilogy listed, since he plays the same character (Mikael Blomkvist) in all three films.

...were your favorite?

Thanks for the corrections. I included all 3 movies since it's not about the favourite character. It's about the favorite movie.

1) Mikael Blomkvist in "Girl with the Dragon Tattoo"  2) Paul Schäfer in "Coloinia"

FYC
I agree, it is a bit confusing, If it about your favorite Michael Nyqvist movie, I would ask the question differently.

On June 27, 2017, Michael Nyqvist  (56) died after suffering from lung cancer. In his honor, which Michael Nyqvist movie is your favorite?


If it about your favorite Michael Nyqvist role, I would expand to include TV and consolidate the sequel roles,

On June 27, 2017, Michael Nyqvist  (56) died after suffering from lung cancer. In his honor, which Michael Nyqvist portrayal or role is your favorite?

Too bad, there are not pictures available, I would have liked to see him in his various movies, as an image poll, Nicely done.

Hyker,

Thank you for rephrasing the question as urbane recommended. It is much clearer now.

Just so you know, this is how you link someone's name: [link=nm0638824]
I suggest you do that, because if this poll goes live it has a chance of showing up on his IMDb page.

For your consideration:

Underbara Älskade (2006)

Grabben i graven bredvid (2002)
http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0298351/?ref_=nm_flmg_act_60

Änglavakt (2010)
http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1391142/?ref_=nm_flmg_act_27

Thanks for all the suggestions! @Jessica, I only considered titles with more than 10,000 votes.

I understand, and I know they don't have many votes, but after all, he was a Swedish actor, and any Swedish person voting on this poll would surely know the films.

Just a thought, I would consider adding some additional titles, you might be missing out on some  of his more recent movies. I saw him most recently in Frank & Lola (2016), which is well below 10,000 votes. Plus, I perceive this as niche poll, the poll takers that take it may be more familiar with his work or skewed to European users. In both cases, a lower threshold might make sense. Here is  Michael Nyqvist  "Most Rated Titles " filmography in descending order.

I'm sorry to say that I don't know Michael Nyqvist very well.  I only know him by name, but I've never seen any of his films.  I know that he was in a film called "The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo", but I only know of the American version with Daniel Craig and Rooney Mara.  I've never seen the one with Nyqvist in it, so I can't give an opinion about someone that I know nothing about.  However, as I said before, I write down the deaths of celebrities on little index cards, or clip announcements of their deaths out of newspapers or magazines and save them for posterity so that I won't forget them, sort of as a hobby of mine.  So, out of respect for Mr. Nyqvist, I was able to find a little bitty clipping of his death announcement from the morning newspaper that my folks and I get every day.  It wasn't much of an announcement, but it was better than nothing.  I cutted it out, and I wrote his D.O.B. and the date that he died on it, and I add it to my collection.  I hope that will be satisfactory to everyone.
