Plot Summary

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 Vanger’s are a secretive clan, and Blomkvist and Salander are about to find out just how far they are prepared to go to protect themselves.

Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: Stieg Larsson's best-selling crime novel has all the makings of a cinematic thriller. As directed by Niels Arden Oplev in Swedish with English subtitles, Tattoo is mesmerizing. – Claudia Puig, USA Today, Jul 6, 2010

Fresh: The mismatched leads make a compelling pair, and director Niels Arden Oplev keeps the action relatively tight. – Elizabeth Weitzman, New York Daily News, Jul 6, 2010

Fresh: An engrossing and classically suspenseful story – Jen Chaney, Washington Post, Aug 15, 2010

Fresh: The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo grapples with far more than "whodunit." And it does a handy job of answering that question, too. – Lisa Kennedy, Denver Post, Jul 6, 2010

Customer Reviews

One of 2010's best films

This film takes beloved source material and refuses to water it down, either in terms of its grittiness or epic scope. And it introduces us to Noomi Rapace who deserves the kind of international stardom that the likes of Penelope Cruz and Javier Bardem have enjoyed. An American remake seems silly and redundant--this is the film the author would have liked to see celebrate his work.

So Good!!

I read all three books and I must say that I enjoyed the movie. I usually don't like the movie after I have read the book but not in this case. The actress that plays Salander was exactly the way I pictured her. She was amazing. The book of course had so much more in it while the movie couldn't depict all of it, I think they chose the parts that where the most important to the plot and to viewer to better understand the main charachter. The title of the book in Sweden was Men who Hate Women. Watch it better yet READ the 3 Books.. A MUST..

Love Lisbeth Salander

I don't think that I've ever liked a film, after reading the book. This was the exception. I just read The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo last week and saw the film this week. Noomi Rapace and Michael Nyqvist were sensational. They were really just as I pictured them. I was impressed at the chosen parts of the book that were included in the film. There is so much depth to the book that it takes true talent to create a film that does justice to Stieg Larsson's book. Kudos to the director and screenwriters. I especially enjoyed reading a book and seeing a film that takes place in Sweden. Don't Americanize this film!!! Only wimps can't handle subtitles.
