The Correct Order To Watch The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo’s Millennium Trilogy – SlashFilm


The original trilogy kicks off with 2009’s “The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo,” starring Michael Nyqvist as reporter Mikael Blomkvist and Noomi Rapace as troubled goth hacker Lisbeth Salander. The two end up working together to solve the mystery of a missing girl and catch a serial killer. The story then continues with “The Girl Who Played with Fire,” also released in 2009. In this sequel, Lisbeth is on the run after being accused of murder. Finally, there’s “The Girl Who Kicked the Hornets’ Nest,” released in — you guessed it! — 2009. In this capper to the trilogy, Lisbeth goes on trial for murder while journalist Mikael Blomkvist tries to gather evidence for her defense. 

So what’s the correct order to watch this trilogy? Honestly, I won’t try to get fancy here: watch them in order. While the first film can stand on its own, parts 2 and 3 are very much telling a continual story — the events of “The Girl Who Played with Fire” lead directly into “The Girl Who Kicked the Hornets’ Nest.” So your best bet is to watch the films back-to-back in order, starting with “The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo,” continuing with “Fire,” and concluding with “Hornets’ Nest.”
