This is a prequel to David Fincher's 2011 adaptation of The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo.
The Girl in the Spider’s Web stars Claire Foy (The Crown) as Lisbeth Salander, the fierce, outcast vigilante defender from the acclaimed Millennium book series created by Stieg Larsson.
A first-time adaptation of the recent global bestseller by David Lagercrantz, the film is directed by Fede Alvarez, the director of 2016's breakout thriller Don't Breathe.
The screenplay adaptation is by Jay Basu & Fede Alvarez and Steven Knight, with characters introduced in Stieg Larsson’s Millennium Series originally published by Norstedts.
In one scene we see Salander rig a rope to hoist a cheating husband upside down, then taser him, as she tells him she is transferring all his money to two prostitutes he beat up and to his wife.
