The Girl in the Spider's Web, the fourth installment in the best-selling Millennium series by Stieg Larsson, will be published in the U.S. this September.
The novel comes on the heels of two previous sequels, The Girl Who Played with Fire and The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet's Nest. According to a statement released by Alfred A. Knopf, Spider’s Web will include “the introduction of Silicon Valley as a locale and a character from the National Security Agency in a central role."
Spider's Web notably marks the first novel in the series not written by Larsson. Instead, Swedish writer David Lagercrantz, a former crime journalist and novelist, took over for Larsson, who died of a heart attack in 2004. Lagercrantz was chosen by the Larsson estate and the author's Swedish publisher, Norstedts, to continue the Millennium books.
Hearthstone's new adventure - Blackrock Mountain - begins later this week (April 2 in North America and April 3 in Australia, New Zealand and Europe), and yesterday Blizzard revealed the final 14 cards.

Just take a look at the new legendaries below (click for a larger image). Getting another copy of any card I draw? Reducing the cost of the cards in my hand at the end of my turn? Becoming Ragnaros? Adding random spells from my opponent's class?

We also saw The Flash reveal his true identity to his father Henry and to Eddie. Following a screening of the episode, executive producer and showrunner Andrew Kreisberg spoke with a group of reporters about those reveals and about whether we'll be seeing the Trickster again.
The father and son Trickster team proved themselves capable of wreaking havoc, and we likely haven't seen the last of them, When asked whether the Trickster will be hanging out with the rest of the Rogues' Gallery in the future, Kreisberg said, "Yes, that is the plan. When I sit down and I think about Wentworth Miller
