Dec. 20, 2011 - Boston.com - Wesley Morris, Globe Staff

Laughter probably ranks toward the bottom of responses to David Fincher’s thriller “The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo.’’ The movie, adapted from the first book in Stieg Larsson’s trilogy, teems with murder, rape, and graphic descriptions of all kinds of awfulness, and its Swedish heroine, a goth-punk-computer genius named Lisbeth Salander (Rooney Mara), endures more assaults than is right. But there’s terrific comedy in the way she interacts with both her allies and assailants. Despite what she’s been through (most of which might have killed a normal person), Lisbeth still manages to muster hilarious exasperation over the little things, like watching someone use a laptop. All that fumbling and inefficiency is almost as painful to her as everything else she’s had to put up with, and the comedy in that moment is human. She has so much taken from her but not her snobbery. Not her sense of decorum, either. “May I kill him?’’ she asks before chasing down one monster.
