Lisbeth is recovering in a hospital and awaiting trial for three murders when she is released. Mikael must prove her innocence, but Lisbeth must be willing to share the details of her sordid experiences with the court.
After taking a bullet to the head, Salander is under close supervision in a hospital and is set to face trial for attempted murder on her eventual release. With the help of journalist Mikael Blomkvist and his researchers at Millennium magazine, Salander must prove her innocence. In doing this she plays against powerful enemies and her own past.

Six months prior to filming, Noomi Rapace started training, learning all sorts of different boxing techniques. This wasn't because these skills would be showcased in the films but to make her body more masculine or androgynous in its appearance. (Although Lisbeth Salander is attractive to both men and women, she never appears truly comfortable in her own skin.) Rapace also worked with a dietitian to help make her as skinny as possible. She also had multiple piercings and learned how to ride a motorbike, earning her license just as filming commenced. See more »
When Lisbeth wakes up at the hospital the doctor is wearing a shirt with the logotype of "Stockholms Landsting" i.e. the health care provider of Stockholm, although she is supposed to be located at Sahlgrenska University Hospital in Gothenburg. See more »
I would never normally write reviews, however after being disgusted by the unbelievable 6.7/10 I had to comment.
For the fact that there is rarely a trilogy of such merit, and yes we can all name the few that come to mind, that in itself deserves credit.
The finale was definitely the highlight, with all loose ends tied and also so satisfactorily lacking the Hollywood ending that we've all known to come and hate, I couldn't have enjoyed it more.
The only things that upsets me now is I might not be strong enough to avoid curiosity and peek at the Hollywood attempt. Though rest assured my curiosity will be spent within the opening sequences I am sure.
The great thing about this trilogy is that I have watched it on my own and now have the excuse to watch again with friends! Enjoy.
