Daniel Craig, Rooney Mara, Stellan Skarsgård and Christopher Plummer star in David Fincher's American remake of the Swedish thriller based on the first novel in Stieg Larsson's best-selling crime trilogy.
Mikael Blomkvist (Craig), journalist and part-owner of 'Millenium' magazine, has just lost a costly legal case against the corrupt businessman, Hans-Erik Wennerström (Ulf Friberg).
The financial hit leaves him with little choice but to take a job offered to him by Henrik Vanger (Plummer), investigating the disappearance of a young woman from the Vanger family some four decades ago.
Blomkvist's search for the truth brings him into contact with Lisbeth Salander (Mara), a young computer hacker with special skill as a researcher.
As the pair set to work on the case, they begin to make some surprising discoveries about the Vanger family and their history.
The film was nominated for five Oscars and won an award for Best Film Editing.
