The film stars Daniel Craig and
Rooney Mara and tells the story of journalist Mikael Blomqvist's (Craig) mission to find out what happened to a woman who had disappeared over forty years before. He works with the help of computer hacker Lisbeth Salander (Mara).
A concerted effort by Sony Pictures Entertainment associates Michael Lynton and Amy Pascal to create the film started in 2009. It took the company a few months to obtain rights to the novel, during which they recruited Zaillian and Fincher.
The casting process for the lead roles was exhaustive and intense; Craig initially faced scheduling conflicts, while a plethora of actresses sought the role of Lisbeth Salander. The film's script took over six months to write, which included three months of analyzing the novel. With a production budget of $90 million, filming took place in Sweden, Switzerland and Norway over seven months.
Pre-release screenings occurred in London, New York City, and Stockholm. Critics positively reviewed the film, applauding its dark, grim tone. Mara and Craig's performances also received kudos from commentators. The film grossed $232.6 million over its theatrical run. In addition to being included in the best-of lists in several publications, the film was a candidate for numerous awards, ultimately winning seven accolades including an Academy Award for Best Film Editing.
Mikael Blomkvist (Daniel Craig), co-owner of Millennium magazine, has just lost a libel case brought against him by crooked businessman Hans-Erik Wennerström (Ulf Friberg). Lisbeth Salander (Rooney Mara), a damaged but brilliant researcher and computer hacker, compiled an extensive background check on Blomkvist for Swedish magnate Henrik Vanger (Christopher Plummer), who has a special task for him.
In exchange for the promise of damning information about Wennerström, Blomkvist agrees to move into a cabin at the Vanger estate to investigate the disappearance and assumed murder of Henrik's grandniece, Harriet, 40 years before. Blomkvist uncovers a notebook containing a list of names and numbers that no one has been able to decipher.
Salander, who is under state legal guardianship due to mental incompetency, is appointed a new guardian, lawyer Nils Bjurman (Yorick van Wageningen). He abuses his authority to extort sexual favors from Salander and then forcibly rapes her, not realizing she has a hidden video camera in her bag. She regains control of her life by blackmailing Bjurman, after stunning him with a Taser, raping him with a dildo, and marking him as a rapist with a tattoo on his chest and stomach.
Blomkvist's daughter visits him and notes that the numbers from the notebook are Bible references. Blomkvist tells Vanger's lieutenant that he needs help with his research, and he recommends Salander based on the great work she did researching Blomkvist himself.
Surprised, he hires Salander to further investigate the notebook's content. She uncovers a connection to a series of murders of young Jewish women that occurred from 1947 through 1967, causing Blomkvist to mention that the Vangers are known antisemites. During the investigation, Salander and Blomkvist become lovers.
Henrik's brother Harald (Per Myrberg) identifies Martin (Stellan Skarsgård), Harriet's brother and operational head of the Vanger empire, as a possible suspect. Blomkvist and Salander continue their research, with Salander uncovering connections between the series of murders, Martin Vanger's father and Martin himself.
Blomkvist breaks into Martin's house to look for more clues, but Martin catches him and prepares to kill him. Martin brags about his crimes, but denies killing Harriet. Salander arrives, subdues Martin and saves Blomkvist. While Salander tends to Blomkvist, Martin flees. Salander, on her motorcycle, pursues Martin in his SUV.
He loses control of his vehicle on an icy road and dies when it catches fire. As more secrets are revealed about the Vanger family, Blomkvist deduces that Harriet has been helped by other Vanger family members with a false identity and a move outside Sweden to hide from Martin. Blomkvist confronts Harriet, who describes generations of abuse within the Vanger family and Martin's knowledge of her involvement in her father's death.
She goes on to explain that she was able to escape through the help of her second cousin Anita, who smuggled Harriet out of the island. Finally free of her brother, thanks to Salander and Blomkvist, she returns to Sweden and tearfully reunites with Henrik
As promised, Henrik gives Blomkvist the information on Wennerström, but it is not helpful. Salander responds by hacking Wennerström's computer and presenting Blomkvist with incriminating information about his activities. This evidence vindicates Millennium and destroys Wennerström.
Salander hacks into Wennerström's bank accounts and transfers two billion euros to her own secret accounts. During this time, Wennerström is murdered. Salander reveals to her friend, and former guardian, that she has made a connection with Blomkvist. On her way to give Blomkvist a specially chosen Christmas present, Salander sees him and his longtime lover and business partner Erika Berger (Robin Wright) walking together happily. She discards the gift and rides away.
