Lisbeth Salander: she gets an Amazon series

Amazon apparently developed a series about Lisbeth Salander. The project about the hacker Stieg Larsson (1954-2004) created for the "Millennium" trilogy is currently entitled "The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo" according to "Deadline". However, the series is not intended to be a continuation of the story from the books or films, instead Salander will be "brought into the world today with a completely new environment, new characters and a new story". A main actress has not yet been found, it is said.

With David Lagercrantz '(57) "Annihilation" the sixth and for the time being the last part of the "Millennium" series of hacking genius Lisbeth Salander and the journalist Mikael Blomkvist was published in 2019. The author doesn't want to write another sequel anymore, he explained. Stieg Larsson, the creator of the "Millennium" trilogy, died of a heart attack in 2004 at the age of 50. His books "Delusion", "Damnation" and "Forgiveness" were published posthumously and became world bestsellers – more than 75 million copies were sold.

Known from books and films

The Swedish film adaptation of the trilogy with Naomi Rapace (40) as Salander finally made Hollywood aware of the material. A remake of "Verblendung" (2011) was shot under the direction of David Fincher (57). The main roles were "James Bond" actors Daniel Craig (52) and Rooney Mara (35), who won an Oscar nomination for their role as Lisbeth Salander.

In December 2013, Lagercrantz was selected by the Swedish original publisher and Stieg Larsson's family to write the fourth volume of the "Millennium" novels. Not only Larsson's longtime partner had spoken out against a sequel. When "Conspiracy" appeared in 2015, there were calls for boycotts. The book was nevertheless a success. With "Persecution" (2017) and "Extermination" Lagercrantz wrote two sequels. The fourth book of the "Millennium" series was also made into a film in 2018. "The Crown" star Claire Foy (36) appeared as "Lisbeth Salander" in "Conspiracy".
