Girl With The Dragon Taroo, The



The long awaited verdict is expected today

in the Wennerstrm case,

in which journalist

and well known editer...

of the largest medium Millennium,

Mikael Blomkvist,

is accused of writing

a lengthy series...

of defamatory articles on financier

Hans-Erik Wennerstrm.

Blomkvist has accused Wennerstrm

of misappropriating funds...

totaling 60 million kroner, as well

as being involved in arms trafficking.

Swedes have always been divided

when it comes to the articles...

written by Blomkvist.

His supporters maintain that he alone

represents the last bastion...

of idealistic journalism

in this country.

But today Mikael Blomkvist's long career as

a watchdog journalist could come to an end.

In the case of Wennerstrm

versus Millennium,

the accused Mikael Blomkvist has been

found guilty of 6 of the 8 charges...

of aggravated libel

laid against him.

The accused is sentenced

to three months in prison...

and is ordered to pay Hans-Erik Wennerstrm

Mr. Wennerstrm.

A statement please, sir.

We need to sanction those people

like Kalle Blomkvis...

who seek to destroy the life

of honest people...

just because they don't happen to share

the same political opinion.

- What's your next course of action?

- I have no further comment.

Oh, there is.

- He's coming now.

What do you think of your

reputation right now, sir?

It's fantastic.

Mr. Blomkvis, over here!

Your protege

don't really deserve this.

What about your future

with Millennium?

- Merry Christmas everyone.

- Skol. Skol.

Merry Christmas, skol.


So, for the appeal,

what are we thinking?

Micke, you know we're behind you

one hundred per cent.

We are right, sir.

Our advertisers

are losing confidence in us.

Launching an appeal

won't regain their confidence.

No, but it might buy us some time,

to win back some of our readers.

- I made up my mind, no appeal.

- It isn't only about you,

- what about Millennium?

- The sooner this is over,

the better it'll be for Millennium.

Let it go.

Listen, I was just playing

devil's advocate here, but...

I think it might be a good idea if Mikael

dropped out of circulation for a while.

Give this thing a chance

to blow over.

- Merry Christmas.

- Merry Christmas.

Micke, wait up.

- You're still in shock, you know that.

- Ah, come on, Janne's got it right.

I screwed up royally,

and now I look like an idiot.

But there has to be another way,

we just have to find it.

There's nothing left in here.

I haven't written a single word

in over a month.

Prison For Mikael Blomkvist


As the general rule, we don't normally

introduce our researchers to our clients.

But under the circumstances and

the important person you represent...

we'll make an exception.

- I appreciate that.

- I should probably warn you.

Lisbeth is a young woman who's a bid...

well, special, shall we say.

What do you mean special?

Oh, please don't be fooled by her

appearance, she's our best researcher.


Good morning, Lisbeth.

Good morning.

Dirch Frode.


Sit down.

Transcripts of text messages.

His E-mails.

His Bank statements.

How did you get access

to all this information?

None of your business,

you ask for it, I delivered it.

What can you tell me

about Mr. Blomkvist?

- It's all in my report.

- I want the short version.

Mikael Blomkvist, nicknamed Kalle Blomkvist

after the fictional detective...

when he solved a series

of bank robberies in the eighties.

Since then he's become

a well known public figure,

the rest is well documented,
