DIRECTED BY NIELS ARDEN OPLEV
IN SWEDISH WITH ENGLISH SUBTITLES
Forty years ago, Harriet Vanger disappeared from a family gathering on an island owned and inhabited by her powerful relatives. Her body was never found, yet her beloved uncle is convinced it was murder and that the killer is a member of his own tightly knit but dysfunctional family. He employs a disgraced journalist and a tattooed and troubled but resourceful computer hacker to investigate. When the pair link Harriet’s disappearance to a number of grotesque murders in decades past, they begin to unravel a dark and appalling family history. But the Vangers are a secretive bunch, and the two truth-seekers learn just how far they are prepared to go to protect themselves.
Author Stieg Larsson, who died suddenly in 2004, left behind three unpublished novels, known as the Millennium Trilogy, which have become a global sensation. The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo is one of the decade’s major literary success stories, selling over 8,000,000 copies worldwide, and this film adaptation is the top grossing Swedish film in history. It’s also a completely captivating, brilliantly acted, graphic, and superbly crafted thriller, suspenseful entertainment of the highest order.
