Taking stock of the full scope this complex, international franchise, let's look at all five films and determine which version of Lisbeth Salander stands above the rest. Directed by Daniel Alfredson, Hornet's Nest picks up immediately where the prior film left off, with Salander hospitalized from the injuries she suffered confronting her evil, crime lord father in The Girl Who Played With Fire. As the hacker heals, Mikael Blomkvist tries to protect Lisbeth from members of the Section, rogue elements from the Swedish Security Service who worked for Lisbeth's father, Alexander Zalachenko Georgi Staykov , who framed Lisbeth for murder, and try to have her assassinated. It's all resolved when long-buried secrets about why Lisbeth was institutionalized and tortured as a child are revealed at last, with the tape of Lisbeth being raped by her court-appointed guardian played at Salander's murder trial.
