The "feel bad movie of Christmas" doesn't open until Dec. 23, but in the meantime, you can delve into the secrets of 'The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo' with a new viral video. Posted to Mouth Taped Shut is what seems to be an episode of the old 'Hard Copy' tabloid TV, complete with cheesy reenactments, cheesy '80s hair and lo-res, seemingly 30-year-old VHS. The 'Swedish Mystery' episode delves into the death of Harriet Vanger, which is the central mystery at the heart of 'Tattoo.'

'Hard Copy,' for what it's worth, ran from 1989 to 1999, occupying a pre-E! niche of celebrity crime stories, inspiring the 'Rock Bottom' parody on 'The Simpsons' episode 'Homer Badman.'
