"Quite why Fincher became involved in this film is unclear - unless it was for the money. I'll wager Niels Oplev's version cost a good deal less than the Hollywood version, yet captures the book fantastically. Fincher's version is a hollow version I thought boring, and showed he had little knowledge of the geography of the region. Oplev's version captures the spirit of the book perfectly, and Noomi Rapace an excellent Lisbeth - I seriously wonder how many dragon tattoos she inspired. Even Rapace's dragon tattoo's better than the one Fincher/Hollywood could come up with for Rooney Mara. Avoid."
