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 and her beloved uncle is convinced she was murdered and that the killer is a member of his own tightly knit but dysfunctional family. He employs disgraced investigative journalist Mickael Blomkvist and the tattooed and troubled yet resourceful computer hacker Lisbeth Salander to investigate.


Opinion

From Library Staff

The original Swedish movie based on Stieg Larsson's book is gripping and disturbing and excellent!

Outstanding, and far, far superior to the cheesy and skeazy American/Brit version (Noomie Rapace, and the actor playing opposite her, can act, for gosh sakes!).

This version is superior to the Hollywood version. No changes in the plot. Hollywood's version changes the ending thus changing story.

This is the superior version of the films based on the bestselling books written by noted Author Steig Larsson, about Lisbeth Salander, a rough edged troubled computer hacker who helps a journalist Mikhael Bloomkvist investigate the disapperance of a young girl. Noomi Rapace best captures the character of Salander, and you're invested throughout the film. While, the Americanized version is still a good movie, this version is by far the better one.

This is the original version, not the one with Daniel Craig. I don't mind a movie with subtitles but Hubby usually can't be bothered to read. Really good movie with a good story line and characted development. A few scenes were hard to watch but definitely a good movie!

Compelling stuff, despite my lack of interest in Crime Thrillers. It's good to be aware of the dark underbelly of society that rarely presents itself.

Surprising twisting well-played film. My daughter read all these books, so I tried this DVD to see if it appealed to me. It's a good flick.

The remake was a very good film and this is somewhat better. The plot is very good based on the now classic genre of: the tangled tale of contemporary researchers trying to solve a deep dark mystery (usually a crime) and (usually) from the past (Possession, The Real Jack the Ripper, etc come to mind but also films like 3rd Man, or Pelican Brief). Well done as it is, the film relies on the Girl for its unique impact and Noomi Rapace delivers on it.

This was tremendous (although certainly the rape scene was difficult to view, and I admit to closing my eyes) and truly outshone the poorly written and acted American/British version. Noomie Raplace can act, and far superior to the actress that played in the English language version, I'm sad to say.
