Trivia

Upon its release, the film has been sold to over 50 countries - a record for any Norwegian film.
The film features several references and tributes to Stieg Larsson's Millenium trilogy. Diana watches the second film from the trilogy, The Girl Who Played with Fire (2009), on TV the night Roger comes home late. Also, aerial shots from The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo (2009) were used to fill in some missing scenes. One of the clips features a car driving over a bridge. The car from The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo (2009) was digitally replaced with the car Roger Brown drives in this film.
Summit Entertainment bought the rights to produce an American remake of this film, even before its initial release.
Casting for the twin police officers Monsen proved particularly difficult because the twins had to weigh over 220lbs and be identical. Lars Skramstad Johnsen and Gunnar Skramstad Johnsen fit the bill.
Claes Greve was Norwegian in the original novel. His nationality was changed to Danish in the film to accommodate the casting of Nikolaj Coster-Waldau.

Roger Brown pronounces his first name with a hard "g", whereas Claes Greve uses the American pronunciation. In the book, Roger himself shifts between the two depending on who he's talking to.
