My wife has read all three books and maintains that the books are far better than the film adaptation. I hadn't read the books and probably won't either. Having watched this film I honestly felt like ending it all as the final credits rolled. Terribly depressing with not redeeming elements what so ever. The characters are two dimensional, the plot is sketchy and the ending is leaning towards the up surd. My recommendation, stick to the books and avoid the films and I have this on good authority.
What a brilliant and surprising movie!

I was absolutly surprised by this film. It is a brilliant story from beginning till end. And there are 2 more films to come. Really look forward to see them. This is so different from any Hollywood movie. It is so much more realistic and the violence in the film is needed and filmed in a none shocking or disgusting way. This film keeps you in a trance before the T.V.
Absolutely one of the best films I have ever seen!
Great - better than expected

I ordered this as love anything Swedish (I hadn't read the book) and it delivers on amazing Swedish landscapes and sets. A good thriller, complex and very dark and violent... but has you guessing to the end. Some good performances. No idea why they feel to make a Hollywood remake of what is already a successful and good film. I guess the yanks can't cope with reading subtitles - too many brain cells involved?
Good adaptation of book

This is a very watchable adaptation of the first book in the millenium trilogy. The 'girl with the dragon tattoo' isnt a particularly likeable character, which is carried through from the book. It is better than the book in some ways as it has removed some of the superfluous information, and side stories, and kept it simple and interesting. Some violent scenes which are difficult to watch.
Read the books......

I had read the book (now reading no. 2) so was gaggin to see the film. Did not disappoint. Kinda scary how Lisbeth looks so like how you imagine her when reading the book. Watch it in Swedish, really glad they did it before Hollywood, nice tribute to Mr Larsson RIP. Interesting what they removed e.g. Mikael and Berger and their physical affair. Be a sheep and read the books, they are great.
