The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo

The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo

Directed by Niels Arden Oplev

Forty years ago, Harriet Vanger disappeared from a family gathering on the island owned and inhabited by the powerful Vanger clan. Her body was never found, yet her beloved uncle is convinced it was murder and that the killer is a member of his own tightly knit but dysfunctional family. He employs disgraced financial journalist Mikael Blomkvist (Michael Nyqvist) and the tattooed and troubled but resourceful computer hacker Lisbeth Salander (Noomi Rapace) to investigate. When the pair link Harriet’s disappearance to a number of grotesque murders from almost forty years ago, they begin to unravel a dark and appalling family history. But the Vangers are a secretive clan, and Blomkvist and Salander are about to find out just how far they are prepared to go to protect themselves.

I saw this awhile ago and read all the books, then watched it again tonight. It held up well and I'm so glad to see it again. I like the Swedish version so much, I have not dared to watch the other version. I'd have to admit I get very attached to Lisbeth Salander (Noomi Repace). I wish I could have a friend like that to inspire me in my own life. I'm looking forward to watching the other two books again soon as I have time to.

Awesome movie! Some small changes from the book, but all make total sense for the story. Better than the American version hands down!
