Vertigo to adapt Stieg Larsson's Millennium Trilogy for GNs

People looking for a surefire way to print money, comics division, have often suggested a Harry Potter comic book. Since that ain’t happening (JK Rowling just isn’t interested), Vertigo has just landed the next best thing: a graphic novel adaptation of Stieg Larsson’s best-selling Millennium Trilogy, with the comics version of The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo set to appear in 2012. Subsequent volumes will appear in 2013 and 2014.
