A disgraced Stockholm journalist, Mikael Blomkvist, is hired to research a family history but finds himself on a dangerous quest to solve the 40-year-old mysterious disappearance of his client’s great-niece. When things heat up only the help of the mysterious girl with the dragon tattoo saves him. Based on the award-winning novel by Stieg Larsson, the first in his Millennium Trilogy.

We got see The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo on it's UK Premiere at Film4's Frightfest in 2009. To give some context to the viewing I had not read any of Stieg Larsonn's books but had heard good reviews of the Millennium trilogy. Also FrightFest is typically associated with films that will frighten the trousers off one; whether it be by gore, shock or copious amounts of blood.

So I was expecting and prepared for a possible gore fest. The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo is none of this it is a twisty thriller with typical Scandinavian sensibilities by way of Se7en. Make no mistake you will be shocked and grimace mainly by concepts delivered off screen.

We both really enjoyed it and where engaged throughout the screening and are looking forward to seeing the further adventures of the Millennium team. Possibly worth noting that this may be a subtitled screening.
