In the Book In the Movie
   When Lisbeth goes to Bjurman's apartment to get money, he slaps her in the face and throws her on the bed. He jumps on top of her and rips off her t shirt and pulls off her pants and underwear. He grabs handcuffs and then ties her legs. He shoves something up her anus. She reaches out and he slaps the handcuffs on her. They struggle and then she wakes up on the bed with all fours chained. He tears off her underwear. He gets on top and puts a condom on and has anal sex with her.
   Lisbeth handcuffs Bjurman to his bed. She shoves a butt plug in his anus. She forces him to watch the full 90 minute video of her rape. Then she tattoos in red and blue ink, "I AM A SADISTIC PIG, A PERVERT, AND A RAPIST" on his body. She leaves him a key to the handcuffs when she leaves. She zipties him to the base of the bed. She shows him a clip of the video and then shoves a dildo into his anus. She kicks it several times. She uses black ink to tattoo "I AM A RAPIST PIG" on him. She leaves him wire cutters when she leaves.
   Mikael serves 90 days in jail as part of his sentence. He didn't get any jail time. Only a large fine.
   Mikael sees the ambulance and runs to the house. The housekeeper tells him Henrik complained of chest pains and collapsed. He runs across a field and flags down Martin in his car. He tells him he was with Henrik when his arm began hurting.
   Mikael's daughter tells him to continue his bible studies as she gets on the train. She saw the numbers in his room. She tells him to go easy on the Catholic's for whatever article he is writing.
