The news: It looks like Lisbeth Salander will live to brood another day — in book form, at least. Almost 11 years after author Stieg Larsson's untimely death, The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo series will get a fourth instalment. The Girl in the Spider's Web will be authored by David Lagencrantz, a Swedish author-journalist hand-picked by Larsson's estate to continue the series. The book will be released on Sept. 1 by publisher Alfred A. Knopf. Will there be another movie? Will Lisbeth have more tattoos? A giant spider, maybe? Colour us intrigued.

The dish: Swedish-style egg, dill and beet on dark rye — the moodiest bread of all. Get the recipe here.
