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.
Set in contemporary Chicago, amid a time of turmoil, four women with nothing in common except a debt left behind by their dead husbands' criminal activities, take fate into their own hands, and conspire to forge a future on their own terms.
Five years after her husband and daughter are killed in a senseless act of violence, a woman comes back from self-imposed exile to seek revenge against those responsible and the system that let them go free.

In Stockholm, Sweden, vigilante hacker Lisbeth Salander is hired by computer programmer Frans Balder to retrieve Firefall, a program capable of accessing the world's nuclear codes that he developed for the National Security Agency, as Balder believes it is too dangerous to exist. Lisbeth successfully retrieves Firefall from the NSA's servers, attracting the attention of agent Edwin Needham, but is unable to unlock it, and the program is later stolen from her by mercenaries led by Jan Holtser, who also attempt to kill Lisbeth. When she doesn't attend their scheduled rendezvous, Balder mistakenly believes Lisbeth decided to keep Firefall for herself and contacts Gabrielle Grane, the deputy director of the Swedish Security Service (Säpo), who moves Balder and his young son August to a safe-house. Meanwhile, Needham tracks the unauthorized login to Stockholm and arrives to seek Lisbeth and Firefall..

The notion of a program that cannot be copied only moved makes little sense.
A file move operation reads the file from the source location and creates a copy at the destination location. It then marks the original file for deletion by the operating system on the source computer. The computer that is doing the copying cannot force the source computer to delete the file, only mark it as such.
The computer that is holding the source file has no control over the computer that is writing the copy of the file to the destination location, It cannot force the destination computer to erase its copy if the deletion of the original file fails.
The notion that only one copy of a program can exist is possible if all computers have software can control the copy, such that it will not finalise the copy until the source location is securely erased, this is often classed as Digital Rights Management software.
In the context of the film transferring a file across many computers, where each one would not be under the scope of such DRM software means any one of those servers could have taken a copy and the notion a file can only exist in one place and a second copy cannot be created is not possible.

[Lisbeth knocks the massive statue in front of her, which has been hooked up to a rope that goes around the man's foot and pulls him up hanging upside down]

In Singapore; the theatrical release was edited in order to obtain an NC16 classification (after the uncut version was passed M18); the distributor chose to remove brief sexual images in three scenes (sight of two characters having sex on a mobile phone screen, a shot of full female nudity and some discreet sexual images in a nightclub). The film remains uncut in all other countries worldwide. See more »
I feel the low rating currently (5.7) is probably because people are disappointed because it can't live up to its predecessor. And it's true, it can't... but in its own right it's still a good movie. Not excellent, but good. The story is okay, the action is solid, and Lisbeth is still badass.
If you have the previous movie sitting in a shrine in your house somewhere and you worship it before you go to bed... skip this movie. If you just want an enjoyable if not terribly memorable action thriller, then go ahead and have fun.
