Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, The ( Män som hatar kvinnor ) 
The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo review
3.5/4 stars

Journalist, publisher and part-owner of the monthly magazine Millenium Mikael Blomkvist meet Henrik Vanger, a retired industrialist and former CEO of Vanger Corporation to resolve a murder of the Vanger family and Harriet's loss. Lisbeth Salander, a surveillance agent with Milton Security, hacks into Blomkvist’s computer. Her new guardian Nils Bjurman physically and sexually abuses Lisbeth. Mikael discovers and seeks the person who tapped into his hard drive. Both team-up to solve the case and the real perpetrator erupts and explains everything to Mikael.

A film that needs patience since it starts slow but eventually picks up as the case is further explained. The score was appropriate, screenplay superb and performances (especially the female lead) were incredible all throughout. One of the best lines: Martin Vanger – “Why? I’m doing what everyman dreams off. I’m taking whatever I want.” Themes of society's evil, mistreatment of women and persistence in solving a case. Only reservations I had was the length and pace in the beginning, where editing could have made the film shorter without some sequences that didn’t relate to the plot. The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo had a good ending when a corrupt billionaire financiers secret bank had been hacked, solid acting and overall mystery thriller. Reproduction of the original is one of the greatest flattery of how good a film is, the remakes prove that.
