Description:

Based on the bestselling novel by Stieg Larsson, this acclaimed Swedish thriller tells the nail-biting story of a journalist and computer hacker who team up to investigate a mysterious murder. Order today to see why David Fincher and Daniel Craig have signed up for the Hollywood remake!

From the literary phenomenon by Stieg Larsson comes this gripping new thriller which will have you guessing right until the very end.

Forty years ago, Harriet Vanger disappeared off the secluded island owned and inhabited by the powerful Vanger family. There was no corpse, no witnesses, no evidence. Nearly forty years later a journalist by the name of Mikael Blomqvist gets an unusual assignment. He's contacted by Harriet's uncle, Henrik Vanger, who wants him to find out what really happened to Harriet. Mikael takes on the job, with help from mysterious biker girl and computer hacker Lisbeth Salander. This unlikely pair form a fragile bond as they dig into the sinister past of this family and find out just how far they're prepared to go to protect themselves - and each other.

Good movie, prefer this over the 2nd one.

Looks like a good movie, I enjoyed the 'Girl Who Played with Fire' at the pictures so I've taken a punt on this one

Your watching them in the wrong order, although it probably wont matter too much :) This is the best of the three though in my opinion.

Definitely the best. Quite disappointed with the other two.

No cinema from foreign countries are outlawed to the non native.

btw heres a test: pick any page from the book and I guarantee you will find some form of platitude on any page.

I'm intrigued by this film, taken a punt at that price so thanks for the heads up.

As for the dub... I don't know how anyone can watch a live action movie dubbed?! It's just wrong IMO.

I watched the first 2 films dubbed and the 3rd one with subtitles. Great trilogy but this one (Tattoo) is the most harrowing.

If anyone enjoys these, try watching The Killing currently showing on BBC4 and iPlayer. It's Danish with subtitles and is brilliant. Same style as Prime Suspect and even better!

I agree

best thing on tv for ages

I've rented this and the Girl who played with fire, and you could pick the original sub-titled or the dubbed versions.
Good films but the picture was very grainy on both, which might suprise some people

At some point there will be extended versions of these released. They were shown on Swedish TV in an extended form.

There are huge chunks missing from this film versus the book. One example being Berger is only seen in one (or is it two?) scenes with no hint of a connection with Blomkvist. Admittedly, it suits film better in this format as it quickens the pace but character depth is compromised.

The lack of Lisbeth's inner voice also changes the way you feel towards the character, you effectively just get the outside view unlike in the books.

Criticism of the books: Stop with the product placement. Maybe Larsson was trying to show how Lisbeth structures everything, maybe it was an error in translation, all I know is that it gets annoying because I simply don't give a damn if an iBook has a 15 inch screen or a 17 inch screen.

The picture is grainy in the last two because they were never meant to be shown in the cinema. It was only after the success of the first that they decided a cinema release would generate a good amount of cash.

The last two were both shot on inferior film stock which is meant for TV use, not sure why the first one seemed grainy to you.

Great film, and at this price a steal.
