Trivia about The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo:

Daniel Craig originally turned down the role of Mikael Blomkvist due to possible conflicts with the next Bond 23: SkyFall (2012). After production of the film was suspended Craig's schedule freed up and retook the role.

Stellan Skarsgård, who is Swedish, appears in this remake but ironically not in the Swedish-language original.

While filming a scene in a diner, cast and crew were surprised to find out that Ellen Nyqvist, daughter of Michael Nyqvist (the first actor to play Mikael Blomkvist), was working there as a waitress while attending school. Upon finding out, they wrote in a few extra lines for her, allowing her to interact with her father's successor, Daniel Craig.

Max von Sydow was the original choice to play Henrik Vanger, but had to bow out and was replaced by Christopher Plummer.
