Fragment?

My computer keeps telling me this is a fragment, but I can't see why:

--The persistent changes of tone—from temper to self-questioning and self-deprecation—typify the instability of Hamlet (and of Denmark) throughout the play.

I would appreciate some help. Thanks.

    I wouldn't trust that computer if I were you, P Hart. The grammar checkers in word processing software often flag complicated sentences as "incorrect" even though they aren't.

    It is not a fragment. Perhaps there is something in the grammar-check program that makes it think that the sentence ends with one of the two dashes.
