  1. I think so too, but there was a girl and I don’t think it was his daughter. In the book, she doesn’t even buy him a leather jacket, just a metal Elvis and that is what she throws in the trash so there is no way to check.

  2. As she was snooping thru his computer in the cottage, before he got out of bed, she found his personal photos. The photo of him (MB) with his arm around a woman stopped her and she clicked it off quickly as he arose and entered the room. My guess is that she was becoming attracted to him ( she was already attracted to black leather) and at the movies end, wanted his arm around her someday.

  3. The photo was Lisbeth’s personal copy that she got from his computer and she used it to compare to the jacket she was buying for him. Mikael was definitely the man in the photo and my guess is that the blonde woman is either Erika or his ex-wife or an old girlfriend of some sort. You can tell that it’s meant to be an older photo because Mikael looks a bit younger.

  4. What is the name of the brand or store of the leather jacket that Lisbeth buys for Blomkvist?

  5. She had the jacket custom made- based on the photo Lisbeth was trying to replicate the “old jacket”, as to instill some sort of feelings of love in Mikael (for her). The man in the shoppe made it seem like it was expensive (custom-made leather products are often times twice as much as a product already available for purchase).

    The ending was just heartbreaking- better than the novel’s ending (and I’m a HUGE fan of the series!) I love that you could see that Salander was human, after all (well, more than in the novel, anyway).

  6. the picture is of Mikael and Ericka when he was younger. Probably in college when he had his own motorbike and played in a band. In the Fincher film it was an awful photoshop of Daniel Craig, he never looked like that when he was younger, for some reason in his earlier movies his face was longer not as round as it is today.

  7. I don’t get the idea that Lisbeth would try to instill feelings in anyone, love or otherwise. She doesn’t manipulate people. When she gives, she gives truly.

  8. Blomkvist and propably his ex-wife Monika.

  9. Notice when she picked up the jacket. the bottom of the photo shown looks like it was cut from a magazine. Look at the white border on the bottom of the photo and the top plus right and left edges they look thin like a magazine.

  11. The jacket was a gesture of feeling, not manipulative, a symbol of understanding, sharing her world with him. She was beginning to heal. A powerful touch in the movie.

  12. In the american movie I froze the image and whie it was not clear I think it was cut from a magazine which I find a fascinating glimpse into Lisabeth’s inner life–that she has romantic yearnings for a life like every young woman. A notion of a man and a woman who look a certain way that is kind of normal and it is this yearning she “knows” is weakness that she associates with what happened to her mother, That to fall in love is to invite pain, a full disaster of destruction of herself. The feeling of jealousy and vulnerability she felt seeing Blomkvist with Erika made her feel she almost lost control of her own fate.

    This and the view that Lisbeth is emotionally 13 years old is, I think, Fincher’s take and his contribution to the discussion. She cannot handle the complications and ambiguities and her own ambivalences. Better to stay alone and stay away from the one who made almost forget her own freakishness.
