If you like coffee like Lisbeth and Mikael like coffee….

There are at least 240 cups of coffee drunk throughout the three Millennium Trilogy novels, and every satirist who has parodied Stieg Larsson’s writing style has included the coffee obsession of his characters. (Larsson himself was reported to have drunk up to 20 cups of coffee per day.) The restaurant-grade Jura Impressa X7 Espresso Machine that Blomkvist finds in Lisbeth’s apartment is a real high end coffee machine for home use. Although Larsson noted that the cost of this machine was 70,000 Swedish kroner (about $11,000 USD) at the time he wrote The Girl Who Played with Fire, the current US online discount price for this machine is now down to “only” $3,000.
