"This DYNAMITE THRILLER shivers with SUSPENSE. In a word, WOW!" - Peter Travers, Rolling Stone

Stieg Larsson's bestselling thriller is now a mesmerizing new film! Lisbeth Salander and Mikael Blomkvist are vividly brought to life in this intelligent and suspenseful adaptation, directed by Niels Arden Oplev.

Swedish star Michael Nyqvist plays disgraced financial journalist Mikael Blomkvist, hired by Henrik Vanger to solve the murder of his niece, teen heiress Harriet Vanger. Harriet disappeared without a trace forty years ago, and Henrik is convinced she was murdered by a member of the family. Teaming up with Blomkvist to solve the murder is the pierced and tattooed Lisbeth Salander, a ruthless punk-rock super-hacker portrayed by up-and-coming actress Noomi Rapace in an amazing performance. As the pair link Harriet's disappearance to a number of grotesque murders, they begin to unravel a dark and appalling family history, as Blomkvist and Salander discover just how far the Vanger family will go to protect their secrets...

The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo won Sweden's Oscar, the Guldbagge, for Best Picture, Best Actress and Audience Award!


  1. I haven't read the book--it's in the stack, but I'd love the see the film! The Lyric is the best theatre in town!

  2. I can't wait! I read the book in about 4 days and couldn't put it down. I'm on the second one now and tearing thru it. Looking forward to seeing how the images in the book were portrayed on film. And the Lyric is the best place in town to see it.

  3. Went to the Lyric for the first time last week and loved it. I'll never go to a multiplex again! The book "Girl Who Played With Fire" was even better than "Dragon Tattoo", and I can't wait to see the films.
