A journalist is hired by a prominent businessman to find the killer of a woman who’s been dead for over forty years. In comes Lisberth Salander, an exceptional researcher.

Brilliant is the word that springs to my mind ten minutes in the film and then twenty minutes into it and even at the end. Everything, from the characters to the story, unfolding like a perfectly blooming flower, is gripping. And the magic of the Swedish scenery adds its own touch (I know I’m a sucker for everything Nordic).

The plot is amazing. With characters built for their own worth and not to confirm stereotypes, the story is empowering and liberating (from a female POV at least) with powerful scenes.

Dubbed from Swedish to English, made in 2009 and directed by Niels Arden Oplev,  this film is something to watch Now I’m on the hunt for the book.
