An industrialist recruits investigative journalist Mikael Blomkvist (Michael Nyqvist) to solve the mystery of his niece’s disappearance 40 years ago.

Blomkvist teams up with computer hacker Lisbeth Salander (Noomi Rapace), and they make a painful journey through Sweden’s violent and seamy underbelly.

This superb film is a faithful adaptation of Stieg Larsson’s novel. Make the most of it, as Hollywood plans a remake – rarely a good idea.

Directed by Niels Arden Oplev
