If you didn't like the remake the original will also do nothing for you.
It's the same movie with weaker direction and actors. Fincher was smart enough to take the original autistic Terminator version of Lisbeth and tweak it into something more human and vulnerable, which Oplev never does. Also the change to the final twist Fincher made was a million times better then the original novel.
I think people were angry over the remake because honestly the actual fucking story is pretty stupid, which is easier to notice in your own language. I've seen plenty of thrillers that were just as ridiculous as English-language potboilers, but because they're "foreign" they get an art-house pass.
Same thing happened to Dragon Tattoo. What was so atmospheric in Swedish comes off as silly in English. I enjoy he first book a lot as a well-made airport thriller, but the people who thought it was some sort of great Chandler-esque mystery were always retards.
Also there's a reason Fincher never made the sequels, both of them are immensely stupid. You would seriously have to throw both books into the trash and re-write them from the ground up.
