29 Movies Like The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo

A wealthy industrialist approaches a disgraced journalist named Mikael Blomkvist with the request that he write a family biography for his family. However, what he really wants Blomkvist to do is investigate the circumstances surrounding the disappearance of his niece four decades ago. Blomkvist isn’t interested at first, but after the other man offers to clear his name, he changes his mind. Blomkvist starts his investigation by speaking to the man’s relatives, who were present at the time the girl vanished; however, some of them do not cooperate with him.

Blomkvist eventually comes to the conclusion that her disappearance may have had something to do with some serial killings that took place 20 years before she vanished, and as a result, he makes a request for a research assistant to assist him in his investigation. The representative of the industrialist suggests Lisbeth Salander, a skilled hacker who performs background checks for them and who has even performed one on Blomkvist. He is so blown away by her report that he asks her to collaborate with him, and she agrees to do so. She is not very social but gets a lot done in a short amount of time.
