Can't remember the movie exactly, but in the book it's Erika Berger: Now, here's another non-boring aspect of the ending, and the part which leaves us scrambling to get to the next book. Something important happens to Salander – she discovers she's in love (for the first time ever!) with Blomkvist. So, what does she do? She tries to love, and ...

In the book, when Dirch Frode asks him (on behalf of Henrik Vanger) not to publish his story, Blomkvist specifically notes: I don’t intend to hang Harriet out to dry, but somebody has to say something about the women who died in Martin’s basement. Dirch, we don’t even know how many women he tortured and slaughtered. Who is going to speak up on their ...

Yes. Mikael found the killer without Lisbeth informing him. But what's great in that? He is an investigative journalist. It's his job to find out/solve a case he's given. He can either succeed or fail. That happens in everyday life. He has lost a case against someone. He couldn't prove his claims. But, what can he do, his opposition is powerful. We ...

What do you need me for? Salander’s ...

I think it would have become more of a moral question if the culprits were still alive and out in the open. Blomkvist did not reveal these facts because that would attract stigma for the whole Vanger family. Also if things were dug up, the fact that Gottfried and Martin abused their own daughter & sister respectively, would become public knowledge. This ...

He sees Harriet reacting to something. She is looking past the photographer, so we cannot see who or what she sees, but her reaction is such that her expression goes from happy to fear when looking from one photo to the next. Blomkvist then sees another photographer in the crowd next to Harriet, taking a photo in the same direction that Harriet is looking. ...

It shown that Lisbeth is an expert hacker. It's stated that she has accessed Wennerstrom's computer because she gives the information to Blomquist to prove what he said was true. Blomquist says..

Lisbeth has a more important role than you giver her credit for. There are several reasons why the English title is what it is, but one of them is that Lisbeth is a central character propelling the action and much of it would not have happened without her involvement. This is clear in the books (and perhaps would have been in the English version of the ...
