Storyline

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, yet her uncle suspects murder and that the killer is a member of his own tightly knit but dysfunctional family. He employs disgraced financial journalist Mikael Blomkvist and the tattooed, ruthless computer hacker Lisbeth Salander to investigate. When 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 Vangers are a secretive clan, and Blomkvist and Salander are about to find out just how far they are prepared to go to protect themselves.

Dark Swedish Thriller!!
9 June 2019 | by sauravjoshi85See all my reviews

If I have to use a single word to define this movie I would use 'Engaging' as the movie is quite gripping.

The movie is a crime thriller in which a journalist is helping a old industrialist with the help of a female hacker and the main leads are Michael Nyqvist and Noomi Rapace.

The movie is very gripping and will keep you engaged Special credit to be given to the screenplay writer. Background music is good, locations are very beautiful. Acting is perfect.

Overall a good and engaging thriller movie to watch.
