Mikael Blomkvist is a minor celebrity reporter who’s image and magazine, Millennium, is dragged through the mud when he is sued and convicted of libel against a prominent industrialist whom he exposed for being involved in much illegal activity. Mikael doesn’t try to defend himself and privately shares that he was set up though he has real dirt on the industrialist that he just needs a bit stronger evidence on. Following Blomkvist’s case is a private detective, hacker Lisbeth Salander, who was hired to report on Mikael by another industrialist, Henrik Vanger, who recruits Mikael to research and make one last attempt to solve a long time family mystery; the disappearance/murder of sixteen year old Harriet in the 60’s. Mikael agrees to the job but Lisbeth covertly stays on the case by cloning Mikael’s HD and following his every move in his research.
