Added DiffLines:

* StrangledByTheRedString: Mikael and Monica each admit (separately) to Erika that "I think I'm in love with her/him". But despite this declaration, Mikael isn't sure if it's serious. Indeed, despite an obviously strong mutual attraction, there's really nothing to suggest this will be anything more substantial than the numerous flings he's gotten into throughout the trilogy.

** In all fairness, Niedermann started the match as a traditional boxing round, at least as traditional a match can be in a warehouse with a kidnap victim and a chainsaw. Roberto got caught by surprise because he was analyzing the match as a typical boxer.

* EndingFatigue: A fairly common complaint about the first installment. The A plot concerning Harriet's murder wrapped up about 25 minutes before the end of the movie, the rest of the time was spent dealing with Blomkvist's and Salander's revenge against Wennerström.

* EndingFatigue: A fairly common complaint about the American adaptation. The A plot concerning Harriet's murder wrapped up about 25 minutes before the end of the movie, the rest of the time was spent dealing with Blomkvist's and Salander's revenge against Wennerström. In his commentary, Fincher says they tried for weeks to get a more natural pacing for a film, but ultimately had to accept it as a "five act" story.

* BrokenBase: Between the fans of Noomi Rapace as Lisbeth and those of Rooney Mara's version. Or, if you prefer, English vs. Swedish versions. Making it more interesting is that the Swedish ''Dragon Tattoo'' film is more faithful to the tone of the novel, while the American one is more faithful to the plot, so everyone gets to decide which is more important to them.

*** And regardless of your thoughts on whether or not you were okay with the series continuing, ''The Girl in the Spider's Web'' was met with mixed reviews. Some enjoyed the plot and characters and were warmly receptive of it as a continuation of the series, while others found that the writing and plot failed to live up to Larsson's and [[{{Flanderization}} flanderized]] both Lisbeth and Blomkvist.

* CompleteMonster: Besides the Vangers, the other two books have Zalachenko, a Russian agent who took refuge in Sweden. Because of his high importance to the government, Zalachenko was allowed to do anything he wanted. His favorite activity was abusing his wife. He would often torture or beat her in front of their daughter. The last time, he beat her so bad he left her with severe brain damage, which resulted in his daughter, [[spoiler: who we find out is Lisbeth]], burning Zala alive in retribution. Surviving with hideous wounds, Zala became the leader of a powerful human trafficking ring where girls were forced into prostitution (he abandoned a more lucrative career as a drug dealer for this profession; it is thus strongly implied he is in this job [[ForTheEvulz out of spite]]. Having many, many women sold into sex slavery or killed when their value diminished, Zala also had multiple murders committed by his [[TheDragon nightmarishly powerful son]], and when he found out his daughter's location, he spared no expense to murder anyone in his path to torture her to death himself.

* HilariousInHindsight: Eva Green and Léa Seydoux were among the actresses considered for the role of Lisbeth, five years after the former and 4 years before the latter would play a BondGirl opposite Daniel Craig.
