Forty years ago, Harriet Vanger disappeared from a family gathering on the island owned and inhabited by the powerful Vanger clan. 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 disgraced financial journalist Mikael Blomkvist (Nyqvist) and the bisexual punk prodigy computer hacker Lisbeth Salander (Swedish Oscar Best Actress winner Noomi Rapace) to investigate. When the pair link Harriet’s disappearance to a number of grotesque murders from almost forty years ago, they begin to unravel a dark and appalling family history and tap into a vein of iniquity and corruption. The Vangers are a secretive clan, and Blomkvist and Salander are about to find out just how far they are prepared to go to protect themselves.

Stieg Larsson died suddenly in 2004, and left behind three unpublished novels, known as the “Millennium” trilogy, which have become a global sensation, elevating Larsson in 2008 to the world’s second-best selling author behind “The Kite Runner”’s Khaled Hosseini. “The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo” is one of the decade’s major literary success stories, selling over 8,000,000 copies worldwide and the film adaptation is Europe’s top-grossing film of 2009.

THE GIRL WITH THE DRAGON TATTOO will open in Washington, D.C. on Friday, March 19th.
In Swedish with English subtitles.
