* AstonishinglyAppropriateAppearance: Casting Creator/NoomiRapace as Lisbeth Salander obviously made things a lot easier for the costume department and the writers. Although finding a grown woman with all of Lisbeth's physical traits would be next to impossible, they got lucky in several regards. Noomi, like Lisbeth, is very small-breasted as well as dark-eyed with a naturally pale complexion, and in her late teens had numerous ear and facial piercings that she readily got repierced for the role. However, she's not as short as Lisbeth at 5'5" compared to 4'11.

* LonelyBachelorPad: Salander initially lives in a tiny, minimally-furnished apartment. After taking a huge "windfall" at the end of the first book, she decides to buy a much nicer apartment in the second book, offering her old one to her girlfriend Mimmy, who comments that it's actually not a bad apartment; Salander was just too lazy to actually clean it.

* {{Retcon}}: The explanation for Lisbeth's Internet handle of Wasp goes from stinging like one in her boxing sessions with Paolo Roberto to her reading comic books as a child and liking the character of TheWasp.

* TheDreaded: No one involved in the human trafficking ring wants to talk about Zala. Just mentioning his name is enough to make them seat bullets.

An American adaptation of ''Dragon Tattoo'' saw release in 2011; Creator/DavidFincher directed, ''Steven Zallan'' wrote the screenplay, and the team of [[Music/NineInchNails Trent Reznor]] and ''Atticus Ross'' handled the music. The cast for the film included Creator/RooneyMara as Lisbeth and current Film/JamesBond Creator/DanielCraig as Mikael. Despite the film's modest box office performance, Mara and Craig will return to their roles for ''Played with Fire'' (though it remains unclear if Fincher will return to direct). Several rumors say ''Played with Fire'' and ''Kicked the Hornet's Nest'' will film simultaneously, though these rumors remain unconfirmed.

* FriendlyEnemies: [[spoiler:Martin Vanger]], like every good murder-mystery villain, comes across as affable because he goes out of his way to help Mikael hunt down Harriet's killer. [[spoiler: Zig-zagged. Martin didn't kill Harriet, and genuinely hopes Blomkvist can figure out what happened to her. It's only when he realizes Mikael has discovered his and his father's killings of other girls that he decides Mikael is a liability.]]

* SadisticChoice: A rare example of one being presented by the good guys. [[spoiler:After Lisbeth and Blomkvist get to the bottom of Martin's activities and uncover Harriet, they're asked not to go public. This will spare Harriet the media circus, but also deny justice and closure to Gottfried and Martin's (many other) victims. It also represents Blomkvist selling out and committing a TreacheryCoverUp, so he still feels dirty even after Lisbeth negotiates a [[TakeAThirdOption Third Option]].]]
