Lisbeth Salander, the punky hacker created by Stieg Larsson, for The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo, is getting another new life on the small screen thanks to Amazon.

The company's streaming service is developing a new, stand-alone series of Salander stories, which will be inspired by Larsson (and David Lagercrantz, who took over writing the Millennium series after Larsson's death), but won't directly adapt any of the actual books. Salander has been the subject of several films so far, including the original three starring Noomi Rapace (which were expanded into a miniseries), David Fincher's 2011 effort that saw Rooney Mara in the lead and The Girl In The Spider's Web, with Claire Foy as Lisbeth.

Andy Harries, boss of Left Bank Pictures and one of the key executive producers behind The Crown and Outlander is overseeing the new series, aiming to bring Salander up to date in today's world. So, The Girl Who Works From Home? The Girl With The Suspicious Cough?
