First Chapter -- First Paragraph -- Tuesday Intros


Diane at Bibliophile by the Sea hosts First Chapter, First Paragraph, Tuesday Intros. This week's intro is from There are Things I Want You to Know About Stieg Larsson and Me by Eva Gabrielsson:



People often ask me if the Swedish drink as much coffee as the characters do in the Millennium Trilogy. Well, we drink a lot of it indeed, given that Finland is the only country in the world that consumes more coffee than we do. And if I had to single out just one thing in common between Stieg Larsson and Mikael Blomkvist, it would surely be their impressive daily quota of coffee.

  1. I'm not familiar with this one, but it now has my interest. Like the intro a lot.

    I enjoyed books 1 and 2 of the trilogy as well (still have #3 to read).
