As Girl with the Dragon Tattoo continues to enthrall fans with the David Fincher-directed movie version, the powerful film also has something else going for it: Fantastic movie quotes.
The story of Lisbeth Salander and Mikael Blomkvist (Rooney Mara and Daniel Craig) and their journey to uncover the truth about a 40-year-old murder is one powerful tale. The fact that the book by Stieg Larsson has sold over 60 million copies and warrants a Swedish film version on top of an American version speaks to the international demand for all things Dragon Tattoo.
After witnessing the fantastic film, we have some pretty stellar Girl with the Dragon Tattoo quotes.
