Claire Foy makes a bold move, from the Queen in The Crown to the gritty Lisbeth Salander, the lead character in the Millennium series written by Stieg Larssson.

The Golden Globe winner will play the cult character, an outcast vigilante defender.

The first book in the series, The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo was adapted for the screen, and starred Daniel Craig and Rooney Mara as Lisbeth Salander. The first three books were also adapted for the screen in Sweden.

The Girl in the Spider's Web is the fourth book in the series, written after the death of Stieg Larsson, by David Lagercrantz.

Mikael Blomkvist, the campaigning journalist is back. A lone wolf whose integrity and championing of the truth brings him time and again to the brink of unemployment - and prosecution.

The call comes in late at night: a superhacker has gained access to critical, top secret U.S. intelligence.

Blomkvist knows only one person who could crack the best security systems in the world. This case has all the hallmarks of Salander. She is accused of acting without reason, taking risks just because she can, but though they have lost touch, Blomkvist knows Lisbeth better than that.

There must be something deeper at the heart of this - maybe even the scoop that Millennium magazine so desperately needs for its survival.

A tangled web of truth that someone is prepared to kill to protect . . .
