International sleeper hit “The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo,” which has grossed more than $70 million worldwide and been sold to 30 territories, has been picked up in five more countries, including Japan and Germany.

The Swedish crime thriller, which was helmed by Niels Arden Oplev and toplines Michael Nyqvist and Noomi Rapace, has been sold to NFP in Germany, Paradiso in Japan, Polyfilm in Austria, Mirovision in South Korea and Lusomundo in Portugal.
