Rooney Mara has gone from sweet-faced star to bad girl Lisbeth Salander.

Mara, 25, is in Sweden shooting the Hollywood adaptation of Stieg Larsson's best-selling novel The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo.

In photos hot off the set, the actress – whose chestnut hair normally falls past her shoulders in gentle waves – is now sporting a severe raven-black cut with blunt bangs.

Add to that heavy eye make-up, a lip ring and boots decorated with duct tape, and Mara's transformation into the feisty computer hacker is complete.–Sara Hammel
