Girl With The Dragon Taroo, The


- My name's Dirch Frode.

I'm a lawyer and I have a client who's

very interested in meeting with you.

It's Christmas, I'm with family.

What's it about?

My client would prefer

to speak with you personally.

Call Millennium after the holidays,

we'll set up an appointment then.

My client is an elderly gentlemen,

I'm afraid he can't wait 'till then...

- Who's your client?

- Henrik Vanger.

Henrik Vanger?

Of the Vanger companies?

Mr. Vanger would be extremely grateful

if you'd come.

Listen, sir, it's Christmas, I'm with

my family and I've had a hell of a week.

I guarantee you, you should come,

Mr. Vanger will reward you generously.


Henrik lives on Hedeby,

it's a couple of km from Hedestad.

The bridge is the only link

to the mainland.

There was a time,

when the Swedish business elite...

would come to the Vanger estate.

Today Henrik lives here alone

with Anna, the housekeeper.

Thank you for coming, Mikael.

I must say the phone call fom Frode

really peaked my curiosity.

You must be hungry,

would you like some lunch?


But why don't we get on to it

- I like to catch the night train back.

- Oh, very well, we skip lunch.

Thank you.

Do you remember her?

It's Harriet, Harriet Vanger,

my brother Gottfried's daughter.

You knew her, didn't you?

Did I meet her?

Your father, he worked for me

during the summer of 1965.

He was a workshop foreman,

at our factory in Hedestad.

And he lived in one of our chalets.

Your mother and you,

would visit on weekends.

Harriet would look after you.

The two of you,

would often play there, by the water.

Yes, I remember her.

- Harriet.

- Yes, I never had children of my own.

She was the apple of my eye.

She was young, intelligent.

I thought of her as

my own daughter.

I see.
