It is an excellent story and a very good movie. However, I enjoyed the original Swedish version a lot more for the following reasons:
-In the original, Lisbeth was darker and seemed more truly damaged and scary in her look and actions.
-Lots of little things were more like being in Sweden rather than a generic European country
-The mannerisms of the supporting characters seemed more Scandinavian than in this version
-I have to admit that it is hard for me to see Christopher Plumber and not think "Sound of Music"
-The offices for Millenium were too fancy in the new version. It is a struggling magazine?
-Bad guys in the original were all a bit more creepy and dark.
I may rent the original version again.
