Swedish thriller "The Girl Who Played With Fire," the second in the Stieg Larsson "Millenium" trilogy, also made the EFA cut and will go head-to-head with sci-fi fantasy "Mr. Nobody" from Belgian helmer Jaco van Dormael and two historic epics: Alejandro Amenabar's "Agora" and Giuseppe Tornatore's "Baaria."

Three comedies round up the nominees: Fatih Akin's "Soul Kitchen," Ferzn Ozpetek's "Loose Cannons" and "Little Nicholas" from French director Laurent Tirard.
