Film adaptation of the 2005 novel of the same name follows an embattled journalist as he seeks the assistance of a young computer hacker in solving the mystery of a long-missing woman's whereabouts.

Remake of The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo (2009). Swedish journalist and magazine co-owner Mikael Blomkvist, reeling from a damaging libel suit brought against him by businessman Hans-Erik Wennerström, makes a deal with tycoon Henrik Vanger that would allow him access to damning information about Wennerström in exchange for research performed into the disappearance of Vanger's grandniece four decades prior. When Blomkvist discovers the existence of a notebook containing names and numbers of unknown origin and purpose upon relocating to the Vanger estate, he must turn to Lisbeth Salander, a brilliant-yet-mentally ill computer hacker, to assist him in getting down to the bottom of a burgeoning mystery. Won an Academy Award for Best Editing; nominated for Best Actress, Best Cinematography, Best Sound Editing, and Best Sound Mixing.
