A Stockholm magazine journalist with a libel conviction hanging over him (Michael Nyqvist) joins forces with the title character, a rebellious, punkish computer hacker (Noomi Rapace), to investigate a forty-year-old missing persons case involving a family of rightwing Swedish industrialists. Director Niels Arden Oplev takes his time setting up the teamwork between haggard, defeated Mikael (Nyqvist) and seething riot grrrl Lisbeth (Rapace), but once they get rolling and things get kinky, the action is exciting and unnerving, in an amiably dumb way. The misogynous chicanery of the reclusive Vanger family’s Nazi past is nowhere near as interesting as the workings of Lisbeth’s emotional state – she’s a tiger taking picturesque revenge on the world. The slightly silly screenplay is by Nikolaj Arcel and Rasmus Heisterberg, from Stieg Larsson’s novel. This was reportedly 2009’s number-one box-office hit in Europe under its original title, which translates as “Men Who Hate Women” (152 min., 2009, not rated).
