H&M has found an unlikely fashion role model for its fall line: The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. The fast-fashion retailer is looking to fellow Swede Steig Larsson’s novel and its hacker heroine, Lisbeth Salander, as inspiration for its upcoming collection.

The Swedish retailer announced that it has collaborated with Trish Summerville, the costume designer on David Fincher’s forthcoming American adaptation of The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo, to create a 30-piece line based on the brilliant but troubled fictional character.

In a statement, Summerville said, “Salander’s look is very real and very lived in, with pieces that her character has worn for a long time, like her jackets that act as her armor to shield her from the world.” Judging from the video above, the collection will have a distinctly punk-goth feel with tattered jeans and lived-in leather jackets. It’s not clear whether you will be able to purchase hacker smarts and an over-developed sense of vengeance or if you have to bring your own.

The collection will be available in stores and online beginning Dec. 14, just in time to get goth gifts for everyone on your Christmas list. Fincher’s Dragon Tattoo film, starring Rooney Mara as Salander, opens in theaters on Dec. 21.
