The Girl With series is split into two distinct categories: Swedish language movies and English language movies.

Swedish language movies:

  • The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo (2009)
  • The Girl Who Played with Fire (2009)
  • The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet’s Nest (2009)

All three of the Swedish language movies are part of the same series and were released theatrically in 2009. Michael Nyqvist and Noomi Rapace are the lead actors across all three movies.

English language movies:

  • The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo (2011)
  • The Girl in the Spider’s Web (2018)

Both of the English language movies are part of the same series, however, these films are only loosely connected. The Girl in the Spider’s Web is effectively a soft reboot/loose continuation of The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, with a new cast.
