(CBS) H&M is looking to "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo" and its hacker heroine, Lisbeth Salander, as inspiration for its upcoming collection.

The Swedish retailer announced Wednesday that is launching a 30-piece line inspired by the brilliant but troubled character.

Trish Summerville, the costume designer for David Fincher's upcoming adaptation of Stieg Larsson's crime novel, created the collection for the clothing company.

"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," Summerville said in a statement. "I wanted the collection to have the essence and strength of Salander, with a fashion edge, and I'm pleased with the result! My goal is for women to find pieces in it that they love and then mix them with their own wardrobe to create their own personal style."

H&M said the collection has "the dark urban feel that defines Salander's character." It will feature leather jackets and trousers, torn jeans and slouchy hoodies, in industrial shades of black, grey, worn white and dark red.

The collection will be available in stores and online beginning Dec. 14. Fincher's "Dragon Tattoo" film, starring Rooney Mara as Salander, opens in theaters on Dec. 21.
