For American fans of that bisexual badass hacker Lisbeth Salander, the wait is nearly over for the final installment of the films in the Millennium Trilogy based on Stieg Larsson’s wildly successful novels.

Swedish actress Noomi Rapace is back as Lisbeth in The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet’s Nest, opening in the U.S. on October 29.

This installment, which has Lisbeth laid up in a hospital bed and facing attempted murder charges following a brutal battle for her life toward the end of The Girl Who Played with Fire, is helmed by ‘Fire’ director Daniel Alfredson and promises plenty of twists, intrigue and hacking. And it promises to have Lisbeth looking not unlike Edward Scissorhands...

Hornet’s Nest is a bittersweet ending for fans of the trilogy thirsting for more Salander since her creator Larsson died of a heart attack shortly after he dropped off the manuscripts for his juggernaut novels to the publisher in 2004.

Then…there is always the upcoming David Fincher-helmed American version of Tattoo starring Rooney Mara, Daniel Craig and Robin Wright – and then likely countless Nikita-esque iterations on television…  Hey, is there a Lisbeth video game yet?

Meanwhile, here’s the Hornet’s Nest trailer:
