Christmas with Lisbeth and Mikael

If you want to celebrate Christmas in Tattooed Girl style, you are in luck.

In our 2011 book, The Tattooed Girl: The Enigma of Stieg Larsson and the Secrets Behind the Most Compelling Thrillers of Our Time, we looked into the high-end home espresso machine that author Stieg Larsson gave his heroine access to when he moved her into the apartment at Fiskagarten 9. Here’s our original commentary:

If you love your coffee like Lisbeth and Mikael: The Jura Impressa X7 Espresso Machine that Blomkvist finds on its own separate table in Lisbeth’s luxury apartment at Fiskargatan 9 is a real top of the line restaurant style coffee machine for home use. Although Larsson seemed to believe the cost was 70,000 Swedish kroner ($11,000 US) at the time he wrote The Girl Who Played with Fire (which was sometime around 2003-4), the current US online discount price for this magical Swiss machine is about $3,000.

Further good news for the Christmas season 2016: that very model has come down in price even more! Amazon is now selling a new Jura Impressa 7 for just under $1,500 and a reconditioned one for just under $1,000.
