Debian "lenny" has the version you need: either:
(best) apt-get update; apt-get upgrade, which will query the repositories and update everything to the latest, or
(worse) update to lenny if you're running sid or etch or an earlier debian, or
(worst) download the sources and compile it yourself, although other packages using libnss3-1d could make that a headache.
You can check out the details - packages which depend on it, on which it depends, etc - at

check this how-to (from the repository):

about your libnss3-1d problem i don`t know. i have got an up-to date lenny and the same version like you
(and it ain`t available from lenny-backports)

dpkg does not resolve depends. Use the Google repo or gdebi.

# Google Chrome
#(wget -q -O - | sudo apt-key add - )
# or (gpg --keyserver --recv A040830F7FAC5991 && gpg --export --armor A040830F7FAC5991 | sudo apt-key add - )
# deb stable main non-free
