The films story is very exciting and puzzling (for those that haven't read the book) and the pace is steady with some really tense situations. The investigation part of the story is excellent. Although it is 2.5 hours long it is never boring. A captivating piece of cinema!

Rather brutal for a thriller: there are raping scenes as well as some rather disturbing conversations. The flick tells the story of Mikael Blomkvist and Lisbeth Salander who investigate the disappearance of Harriet Vanger 40 years ago.

Good acting, but I found the movie too boring and even too sick. I haven't read the book, so I don't have a comparison, but I had a hard time paying attention to the film
