* 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.

* AwesomeMusic: The score by [[Music/NineInchNails Trent Reznor]] and Atticus Ross for the 2011 film qualifies, not to mention the cover of [[Music/LedZeppelin Immigrant Song]], performed by [[Music/YeahYeahYeahs Karen O]] during the opening credits, or the other cover, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gVEsA6BSsWc Is Your Love Strong Enough?]], by his wife Mariqueen Maandig.

*** 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.

* SeasonalRot: Generally considered the weakest in the series, with the gripping action of the first two novels put aside and more ponderous legal drama taking the stage.

** In all fairness, Niedermann started the match as a traditional boxing round, at least as tradition 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.
* HarsherInHindsight: In the novel, its hinted that Mia was pregnant.

** In regards to the books: The Larsson books or Post-Larsson books. Either you're okay with the series continuing and trying to fulfill Larrson's idea of ten books within the series ''or'' you find it a complete middle finger from Larsson's family decided to continue the series and disregard the fact his partner, Eva Gabrielsson should be a part of Larsson's estate (as she owns the last of the planned manuscripts Larsson had written before his death) due to the two never being married, as which was both Larsson and Gabrielsson did intentionally to avoid being tracked due to their anti-fascist work.
