Swedish actor Michael Nyqvist best known for a leading role in The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo has died at the age of 56 after a year-long battle with lung cancer.

Nyqvist 'passed away quietly surrounded by family' in Stockholm, his spokeswoman Alissa Goodman said in a statement that called him 'one of Sweden's most respected and accomplished actors'.

'Michael's joy and passion were infectious to those who knew and loved him. 

'His charm and charisma were undeniable, and his love for the arts was felt by all who had the pleasure of working with him,' the statement said.
The patch has a hundred tiny hair-like microneedles on its adhesive side that penetrate the skin's surface.

That should help more people get immunised, including those who are scared of injections, experts told the Lancet journal 

Unlike the standard flu jab, it doesn't need to be kept in the fridge, meaning pharmacies could easily stock it on their shelves for people to buy.

Experts say the patch could revolutionise how flu and other vaccines are given, although more clinical tests over the next few years are needed to get the patch system approved for widespread use.

Experts from Public Health England said it might also be good to use in young children, who tend not to like needles, although the UK has already introduced a nasal spray flu vaccine for them.

The patch can be thrown in the bin after it is used because the microneedles dissolve away.
