This strange, shadowy and dark North-European thriller is a compelling mix of danger and morality, rather than just a classical detective story. “The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo” is the first novel of Millennium trilogy by Stieg Larsson, who actually specializes in right-wing extremist organizations. That’s from where he put his expertise into the novel, containing such dark points of humanity as serial murders and sadism, which are, however, brought up only by a search for truth. The book corresponds to the movie, directed by Niels Arden Oplev, both in detail and spirit.
Blomkvist (played by Michael Nygvist) is a talented journalist, almost a hero, who gets convicted of libel. After that a rich industrialist Henrik Vanger finds Blomkvist with a hope to give him a job – solving a mystery happened forty years ago. His great-niece, Harriet, disappeared from the family house, located on Hedeby island, and that case keeps haunting Vanger ever since. Every year, on his birthday, he gets a flower in a frame, always mailed from far places. Vanger is sure that the sender of the flowers is the man who killed Harriet, or, probably, some his relative, like his fanatic brother or Harriet's alcoholic father named Gottfried (if he was still alive). However, before Vanger offers Blomkvist a job, he decides to check him and hires Lisbeth Salander (performed by Noomi Rapace) for that – a hacker genius in her early twenties. She confirms that he is clean, and also thinks that his libel charge was a buckpassing. She keeps tracing Blomkvist’s computer, gets interested by the Vanger case, and sends him a clue. After that the couple joins forces and grows close.
Lisbeth, the girl with a tattoo, here symbolizes voiceless female victims of the world, as the name of the movie in Sweden reads “Men Who Hate Women”, but she’s not the only one who becomes a victim.
The director, Oplev, is incredibly talented, as he fuels the atmosphere of the movie with such dramatic touches as the face of terrified Harriet, frozen in a photo, looking into the eyes of her killer; or bright images of a desolate island with a sunny land belying all its secrets beneath. So the movie ends up as a thriller which not just thrills, but also possesses a sense of justice and a conscience. I strongly recommend to watch it, and maybe not just once.

|Many thanks SaM,look like its going to be a good watch.|
|HHHHMMmmmmm oh yes gotta get it! Thanks for the read SAM.|
|thanks look interesting, ill keep an eye out for it !!|
|It's already on here as 'MÃ¤n som hatar kvinnor'. Def worth watching.|
|This was not a good film at all. Actually none were. I've seen all three (all available online), and had high hopes for them all. They were well shot, had interesting characters, and were not by any means by the n umber thrillers. Ultimately they were some of the most unthrilling thrillers I've seen in quite some time. Yet again I should have listened to the real critics, and not the online critics that have given bad advice countless times before. Thats 2 hours and twenty min. of my life I'll never get back for the first movie alone, god I should have listened. I've never read the book either. So I'm not one of those people that are bitter for having their book turned into a film. If you want to see some recent great foreign films see the French masterpiece Un Prophete, the top notch Korean thriller Secret, or the very suspensefull Chinese thriller The Message. Or even the Brittish Red Riding Trilogy was far superior to this. Now those are thrillers.|

Pawn Sacrifice is off the board

David Fincher Will Direct Dragon Tattoo
With the paperback of The Girl Who Kicked the Hornets Nest, part three of Stieg Larsson's Millennium trilogy, published today, the announcement that David Fincher has confirmed that he's directing the US version of The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo is a timely one.
He was rumoured to be "circling the project" a couple of weeks ago, but The Playlist have the scoop that the English-language Dragon Tattoo will be Fincher's next film, following his Facebook founding story The Social Network.
The news that he also had his eye on the Bobby Fischer Chess drama Pawn Sacrifice seems not to have been entirely accurate: the official line is that he "met with the producers to help them out", but never entered the running to direct. The status of Heavy Metal is unclear, but as a portmanteau with multiple directors (James Cameron, Zack Snyder and Gore Verbinski among them, according to news from last summer), Fincher's involvement or otherwise is presumably not a deal-breaker.
Dragon Tattoo US-style is being produced by Scott Rudin, with Steve Zaillian currently attacking the screenplay. So with a director locked in, the next big focus will be the casting of the series' hacker savant protagonist Lisbeth Salander (nobody's talking about Mikael Blomkvist yet). Carey Mulligan's name was bandied about recently, but Fincher is apparently keen to find an unknown. Shooting is pencilled in for September, so somebody's big break is just around the corner...
