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 Mikael Blomkvist and the tattooed and troubled yet resourceful computer hacker Lisbeth Salander (Noomi Rapace) to investigate.

While 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.

The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo is one of the decade's great literary success stories, selling over 8 Million copies worldwide, while the film adaptation has become the highest grossing Swedish film in history and Europe's highest grossing film of 2009.

Webmaster's comment: It's in this first movie that Lisbeth Salander makes what I consider to be the most important statement she makes in all her movies:
"Don't turn him into a f______ victim. He nearly killed you. He was a killer and a rapist and he enjoyed it. He had the same chances as everyone else. You choose who you want to be. He wasn't a victim. He was an evil m_____f_____ who hated women."

Adult men who abuse, beat and rape women have no excuse. They have grown up in a society where the abuse, beating and raping of women is known by all to to be wrong. There is certainly no excuse for not knowing that and having a difficult childhood is no excuse for making these choices either once they become adults. They know what they are doing. They are not victims! They've deliberately chosen to hurt others, and they should be severely punished for making that choice.
