The original has been on my Netflix queue for months. I really need to check it out before Hollywood ruins it.

You don't even know what you're missing. All 3 were fantastic. Dragon Tattoo being the best (imo) followed Hornet's Nest and finally Girl who Played with Fire.

1 > 3 > 2

I'm lookin forward to the american adaptation too but I highly doubt they'll be able to touch Noomi Rapace in this role.

They got David Fincher and Trent Reznor back from The Social Network and a solid cast so who knows maybe this'll turn out to be great.
