THE GIRL WHO PLAYED WITH FIRE is a Swedish language drama about a young woman being framed for murder as she searches for her estranged father.

Language

The film contains several uses of strong language ('f**k').

Violence

The strong bloody violence occurs mainly at the film's climax as the central character fights for survival against a villian and his henchman. There are images of the character using an axe to injure her enemy, striking him in the head and knee. The blows with the axe are mostly masked and lack any strong injury detail but the bloody aftermath of the injuries is shown.

Sex

The main female character has sex with an older woman. There is breast nudity in the scene and very brief sight of pubic hair as one of the women performs cunnilingus.

There is a scene in which a prominent member of Swedish society is seen having sex with a prostitute whom it is suggested is a victim of a human trafficking gang. The woman is bound hand and foot to ensure that she submits to the sex, which essentially places her in the position of rape victim. Though the scene contains brief nudity, there is no attempt made to eroticise the sexual activity and there is a compelling contextual justification in that it illustrates one of the central threads of the narrative, which involves an ongoing investigation into human trafficking and the abuse of such women by high ranking members of the Swedish government.
