The first movie, based on The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, was excellent and I'm even looking forward to the Hollywood remake that's due out December, 2011 starring Daniel Craig and Rooney Mara. By the way, the caption on the movie post reads "Evil shall with evil be expelled, which is a great line." The second movie, based on The Girl Who Played with Fire was so over the top and untrue to the book that I didn't like it. Let's face it, it was a bad movie based on a great book. The third and final movie, based on the best book in the series, The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet's Nest, was the second best movie of the trilogy. I was disappointed with the third movie and I expected more. I suppose it makes sense because the best parts of the third book are during the courtroom drama and there's only so much you can portray in a movie, even if it was 147 minutes (based on Netflix).
