The movies are worth seeing; Noomi Rapace was spectacular. You may want to use the direct links noted below; I had a little trouble finding them films with a basic search on Hulu. The official word:

The phenomenon of the internationally celebrated works of Swedish author Stieg Larsson continues on Valentine’s Day, February14, with the launch of the films of THE DRAGON TATTOO TRILOGY on the free, ad-supported Hulu and Hulu Plus subscription service, in conjunction with the launch of the Music Box Films Channel

The films of THE DRAGON TATTOO TRILOGY—TheGirl With The Dragon Tattoo, The Girl Who Played With Fire and The Girl Who Kicked The Hornet’s Nest— are led by the spectacular, sexy and singular film star Noomi Rapace as Lisbeth Salander, the series’ pierced,punked-out but troubled computer-hacking heroine, and Michael Nyqvist as Mikael Blomkvist, the journalist with whom she partners to investigate a series of intense and bizarre crimes in modern-day Sweden.

Critics and audiences both agree that the film versions of Larsson’s THE DRAGON TATTOO TRILOGY (also known as the “Millennium Trilogy”)—TheGirl With The Dragon Tattoo, The Girl Who Played With Fire and TheGirl Who Kicked The Hornet’s Nest—have become international pop culture landmarks. Co-produced by Sweden’s Yellow Bird production company and Denmark’s Nordisk Film in 2009, the films have grossed over $22 million in US theaters, and over $200 million dollars internationally.

Swedish journalist Stieg Larsson, at the time of his death in 2004, was about to become one of the world’s most acclaimed and successful authors. His posthumously published trilogy TheGirl With The Dragon Tattoo, The Girl Who Played With Fire and The Girl Who Kicked The Hornets’ Nest have sold more than 35 million copies in more than 40 countries around the world. Their popularity has since made him the world’s second best-selling author of 2008 and 2009.

Bringing Larsson’s Lisbeth Salander to life from the printed page—and undoubtedly another key to the success of the films of THE DRAGON TATTOO TRILOGY (all of which enjoyed sensational theatrical releases in the U.S.’s top 100 markets)—is the remarkable Noomi Rapace, who has since gone on to star in such Hollywood blockbusters as Ridley Scott’s Prometheus and Guy Ritchie’s Sherlock Holmes: Game of Shadows. TheSwedish actress has been lauded as “a singular combination of eerie beauty and feral intensity” and “a movie star unlike any other” by Joe Morgenstern of THE WALL STREET JOURNAL, while her character of Lisbeth Salander has been described as an “uptight, ferocious, little gamin [who] has won our hearts” by Roger Ebert of the CHICAGO SUN TIMES.
