This English-language adaptation of the Swedish novel by Stieg Larsson follows a disgraced journalist, Mikael Blomkvist (Daniel Craig), as he investigates the disappearance of a wealthy patriarch's niece from 40 years ago. He is aided by the pierced, tattooed, punk computer hacker named Lisbeth Salander (Rooney Mara). As they work together in the investigation, Blomkvist and Salander uncover immense corruption beyond anything they have ever imagined.Written by
The action in the movie takes place in Sweden, but almost all of dialogue is in English. The movie makers have gone to great pain throughout to translate documents, notes, emails, newspaper reports etc. into English. However, on the wall where Mikael's pins his research material, some of the newspapers are clearly in Swedish. At one point, he picks up a news clip with the headline "Gottfried Vanger påtraffad drunknad" (Gottfried Vanger found drowned) which is inconsistent with the rest of the movie. See more »

I liked both the Swedish version and the US version...I think both are great in their own right. Mara and Craig bring a very interesting chemistry to this version that I really enjoyed. The noir-esque feel of the film is really cool. The soundtrack is killer (Trent Reznor)! Worth a watch if you haven't seen it already
