Millennium is a Swedish six-part television series based on the film adaptations of Stieg Larsson's Millennium series, that was broadcast in 2010. The series was produced by Yellow Bird in cooperation with several production companies, including SVT, Nordisk Film and Film i Väst. At Kristallen 2010, the series won the prize for "Årets TV-drama" ("This year's TV drama").

It was broadcast in six parts on SVT1 between 20 March 2010 and 24 April 2010. Later in the summer of that year the series was released on DVD and Blu-ray, with the following additional support material and deleted scenes.
