Coffee and sandwiches??!!

What’s with the coffee and sandwiches? What kind of sandwiches? It seems like this is all they eat. Frozen pizza, fish casserole and ham pie are mentioned, but sandwiches are in almost every chapter. I’m just curious.

    I read the entire trilogy on iPad over a month, on my lunch breaks, while drinking coffee and eating sandwiches – either tuna salad or turkey wraps. So it felt kind of like being there with the characters who where always having coffee and sandwiches. It felt natural.

    I think it’s really interesting how they eat sandwiches and coffee in the book. It seems…satisfyable. But maybe, it reflects what he eats or what he observed when he was writing his boko.

    Coffee and sandwiches. Beside all the other things in the book to remember, coffee and sandwiches stand out hte most. However, onr other thing is missing. When a lead character finanny falls asleep, he, she, does it in about 30 seconds and sleeps for at least 15 hours. WOW

    I am a Finn (neighboring country to Sweden) living in the USA. Reading the books got me so homesick. Billys pizzas!!! They are tiny rectangled panpizza pieces that just are tossed in the micro and voila! And they are sooo good. About the cheese and marmalade. I still eat here a warm slice with toast with a bit margarine, a slice of swiss cheese and a teaspoonful of orange marmalade. It is so yummy. Enjoy it with a cup of COFFEE …LOL

  • swedish literature rules – raed Henning Mankell next in Norwich says:

    I am not remotely surprised that the vast majority of these comments regarding coffee come from Americans, who appear to believe that any behaviour which does not mirror their own is deviant! Swedes drink copious amounts of coffee – just a simple fact! To find cheese and marmalade a weird combination from a nation whose children grow up on peanut butter and jelly sandwiches is ironic, no?

  • Benjamin in Stockholm says:

    Chart in Madison WI:

    The plural is because sometimes one sandwich is just not enough food. Even if you cut one in half it would technically be two sandwiches.

    Coffee is a convenient way and reason to meet up with people. Traditionally “fika”, which is coffee and a snack (something sweet, kanelsnurror, etc), is something nice to do especially in winter because it’s quite cold and dark which makes one tired.

  • Goldie in Ann Arbor says:

    From a Swede-American: Swedes drink a lot of coffee, and eat a lot of sandwiches. That’s all there is to it. And sandwiches are open-faced, with either crispbread or delicious dark sliced bread, butter, sliced cheese (I’m talking real cheese and not this processed cheese product business that’s considered cheese here in the US), and veggies like cucumbers and tomato. Sometimes with ham, sometimes with jam.

    Posted by Goldie in Ann Arbor ,


  • Connie in Buffalo says:

    Goldie in Ann Arbor makes me feel much better about the mental image I had of all the sandwich eating. I did not picture them eating processed ham and american cheese on Wonderbread. I actually did picture the open-faced sandwiches that I had a lot of when I was in Germany – on thin, hard, dark bread, with delicious cheese and Westphalian ham or some type of sausage.

  • Kat in Portland says:

    I would guess a lot of questions come from Americans because we are curious…I had a German prof. once who commented how odd Americans are for making a pot of coffee and drinking it all day…go figure.

    And the cheese thing did sound odd until someone mentioned Swiss cheese…jam or jelly with cream cheese is a pretty common topping here.

  • Lisa in Brisbane Australia says:

    I went out and bought marmalade and had it on toast with cheddar, avocado was off so missed the full effect. So taken by the books I could not get the sandwich out of my head until I tried it. I think eating and drinking connects the reader to the story as people, their daily routine of normality underlying their new roles as super heroes.

  • Supertec in Chingford says:

    Barely a few pages go by without a coffee machine being switched on. I like coffee as much as the next person, but the Millennium trilogy takes it to ridiculous proportions. The description of Salander’s coffee machine verges on coffee porn.

    Anyone have a favourite coffee reference from the books?

  • mkm in handel says:

    I´m am an American living in Holland and I must say the coffee and sandwhiches bit is pretty similar to what I have seen in Holland. Coffee in the morning, mid morning, at lunch, mid afternoon, and in the evening after dinner. Breakfast consists of a few open faced sandwhiches, usually with butter cheese and sausage, and lunch is 4 or 5 open faced sandwhiches with the same or something sweet like jelly or hagelslag or even just butter with sugar. Reading these books made me greatly appreciate the daily routine here, and if there was such a thing as coffee porn I would probably watch it, I´m an addict lol.

  • mkw in Hong Kong says:

    I have to agree with Supertec, while the books were very entertaining, the references to coffee (poured from a thermos) were so frequent that they started to get rather irritating..

  • Picasso the mean MCO cat in Luleå says:

    As an typicall swede. Now that i read some of your comments. Let me point out some things. Yes the swedes are the 2:nd largest consumer of coffee. The toast with swiss chees and some orange marmelade is excellent. But hard bread with either just caviar or ham and some musterd on is also great. And another great version of hard bread is swiss cheese with cucumer and tomato is also good.

    As for why there is so much of the coffee and the sandwiches and billy pizzas. My idea is Stieg associated himself very strongly to the characters in the books. He was under a lot of preussure, running his paper, the economy, the threats from the right-wing movement. And on top of that writing the books.

  • Nighthawk in Anchorage AK says:

    The characters are working round the clock and need coffee to stay awake. And sandwiches are easy for Lisbeth to carry while she’s on the hunt. Plus, she lives alone and likely isn’t interested in cooking for herself; food prep steals time from computer research.

  • juliea in Orlando says:

    frabro in melbourne.vic ,Lisbeth furnished her new apartment from Ikea – the only reference to Ikea though, though they get 2 plugs in this post. LOL

    Lived in Germany – could visualize the sandwiches and coffee just the way they are eaten over there – put me on a lifelong trek for the best bread in the world, which I still think is German bread. Best cheese: Bulgarian feta. Add tomatoes and olives and one is set!

  • danish in Denmark says:

    a “sandwich” is also just a simple slice of dark whole grain bread with a thin slice of meat, cheese, topped with cucumber, some kind of mayo-salad and so on. It is quite scandinavian, and in the danish translation it sometimes is said to be “madder” – you can find a deluxe version of a danish “smoerrebroed” on http://www.idadavidsen.dk/index.php?page=3 ;o)

    As for the coffee – it didn’t even strike me as odd – I don’t drink coffee myself, but it is ever-present in Denmark too – in the morning, mid-morning, afternoon and evening, coffeebreaks is considered a human right…;o)

  • admin says:

    LOL, Swedes love their coffee (usually black!) and cheese and marmalade is a common combination, just like North American like their peanut butter and jam sandwiches, which I found kinda weird when I first came over here.


  • Veronica in Södra Ängby says:

    smörgås=sandwich. bread, BUTTER (why was everyone leaving out the butter?) cheese, ham. sometimes tomato, cucumber, shrimp, mayonnaise.

    There is something like “afternoon tea”, in Sweden called “fika”. it’s usually around 3 or 4 and one stops to have coffee (oh the coffee here is really strong, not like Starbuck’s or something else lame) and smörgås and cake/pastry/etc.

    I find it hilarious as I read through all these comments.

    chart in Madison,WI and mkw in Hong Kong, get your heads out of your ass. Your cultures do not rule the world, even though you think they do. Why not do a little research if you read a book about people and places in a different part of the world from where you live. Enlighten yourself without being a total idiot. It reflects on you, and where your from. Luckily we have people like ‘Veronika in Sodra Angby’ and ‘Picasso the mean MCO cat in lulea.’ To give us a better perspective.

  • Ro in Ireland says:

    I really enjoyed reading about the eating habits in Sweded… and everything else I didn’t know about, like placenames and monetary values. It adds authenticity to any book. I did notice that they drank a lot of coffee but it didn’t strike me as very strange. They always seemed to be in situations where coffee was needed! Besides, I think if the setting was Ireland, the same could be said of the amount of tea we drink.

    A question for those who drink coffee all day: Doesn’t it affect your sleep?

    I read somewhere that Stieg Larsson suffered from sleep problems.

    I love coffee but can’t drink any after, say, 2 pm or I can’t sleep that night.

  • Lydia in Canada says:

    as a coffee drinker (6 cups a day at least) and sandwich fan (no one to cook for, no mess, and huge variety) I did not find the books odd in that respect. This thread, on the other hand, is a little odd. But then, I would be weirded out by a book where people drank pop and ate chips all day.

    Posted by Lydia in Canada ,


  • Veronica in Södra Ängby says:

    Herr Larsson might have suffered sleep problems due to the fact that he had a target on his back? Proper Swedish coffee is made in a copper pot where one boils the water adds the coffee and lets it sit (whilst making the sandwiches). The spout sits high on the pot so the grinds sink to the bottom and the coffee pours off the top. Anytime someone shows up at your home, you are expected to make coffee and put together something to eat. Anytime you show up tp someone’s home, it is rude not to drink their coffee and eat something.

    “I am not remotely surprised that the vast majority of these comments regarding coffee come from Americans, who appear to believe that any behaviour which does not mirror their own is deviant!” – Swedish Lit Rules

    I love it that instead of saying unusual or strange behaviour, you said DEVIANT. Brilliant. The Americans believe that any behaviour different from their culture’s is “deviant”.

    So Swedes are the second biggest coffee drinkers….who are the first? Italians? They certain drink a lot here, and one cup disappears in about 2 seconds. They don’t mess about!

    Posted by Cass in Christchurch, NZ ,


  • Bob says:

    deviant = something that strays from the norm.

    A lot of us — from countries all over the world –commented on the amount of coffee because it was outside our norm.

    And as Swedish coffee is strong, and heavy on the caffeine, it made me wonder how drinking so much affected sleep and the body’s central nervous system. I think I would drop dead if I spent a day drinking coffee with Michael Blomkvist — my body would go into shock. Really. But perhaps a person develops a tolerance for so much caffeine over time.

    In any event, I don’t think anyone is engaging in “my country’s better than yours” — so can’t we all get along? Celebrate our differences? Kumbaya.

    My grandmother ( Signe) and my mother (Linnea) are Swedish, we lived in Chicago. The food mentioned in the books is very typical faire. Growing up, I thought these combinations were unusual, and my friends teased me about all the butter butter butter on the bread, often w/ a sausage called “corv” sp? I still have fond (lol) memories of not eating Christmas dinner consisting of items such as head cheese, pickled herring, rye crisps, caviar, and of course Glogg.

    I found it to be humorous that they drank so much coffee in the book. I didn’t know coffee was such a customary thing in Sweden and was delighted to learn so many things about the country through these books, even if it was just a simple thing like that. I drank more coffee during my time reading these because it was mentioned so much I was always craving it.

    attending my monthly book club meeting tonight, where the ladies and I enjoy “pot-luck” and book discussion. We’ll be discussing “The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet’s Nest”. Most everyone really enjoyed the trilogy and our next book will most certainly be not as enjoyable. Last month I suggested our “pot-luck” be coffee and sandwiches. Some of the ladies agreed this was a great idea so I’ll be bringing small tea sandwiches of tuna salad on wheat bread and smoked turkey with applebutter and a big pot of coffee, yummo! Coffee and sandwiches are quick and satisfying in a world of espionage, murder, revenge and magazine publishing! :D

    The translation into English of the coffee pot as a “thermos”(vacuum flask)seemed a bit strange. I would imagine it would be logically something like an air pot with a top plunger or even a carafe on a hotplate.

  • Mona in Edmonton says:

    I find it hilarious that other people noticed the amount of coffee consumption in the trilogy as well; I thought I may have been the only one. After reading all these posts, it surprises me that some people think that bringing up the subject means we who noticed it think we’re somehow superior to the Swedes, or that we’re judging them for a behaviour that may be different from our norm. I disagree completely. The difference intrigued me as I read the books, and mostly I was just curious as to whether or not this habit was indeed country-wide, or if perhaps it was simply Larsson’s personal preference that he included into the stories. After reading these posts, I’m glad to discover an answer, but I wouldn’t want to be judged for simply questioning it in the first place.

  • Ronna in texas says:

    Lisbeth struck me as someone who doesn’t cook because she didn’t grow up in a healthy home environment and had no model for domesticity. And she is too uncomfortable in conventional settings to go to a sit down restaurant. So it fit her personality to be eating quick foods like sandwiches, frozen pizzas, and fruit. And when she knew she had to hunker down for an investigation, she stocked up on these items so she wouldn’t have to go out for days.

    Other characters who fed on sandwiches seemed to be doing so because they needed a quick meal. When they had leisure time (which wasn’t often), they ate regular meals (e.g. Mikael and Berger at Samir’s or Mikael at his sister’s house).

    While I accept that Swedes drink lots of coffee, I didn’t think it needed to be mentioned as often as it was. Don’t get me wrong, I’m a big fan of the books, but they could’ve edited out some sub-plots and some of the coffee drinking, and turning on the coffee machine, and going to the coffee machine to get a refill, … The resulting story would’ve been the same.

  • VikingMom in San Diego says:

    Coffee is a Scandinavian National drink. It can be documented to the Viking age. I am a food historian and I have a copy of King Gustav I journal were he complains how he learned to drink that “horrid brown liquid” but discovered it made his insides feel better. I am not surprised that coffee is included in the stories. Besides, the Americans don’t have room to talk about the amount of coffee they drink. It is callled by fancy names like Carmel Macchito, cafe latte with low fat soy etc.

  • Pianoman617 in Boston says:

    My dad and I turned the book into a drinking game: every time they mentioned the coffee sandwich combo you’d have to take a shot. Needless to say we both wound up feeling a bit warmer by the end of the book if you catch my drift. And the plot was all the more intriguing after a couple shots of whiskey! I highly recommend it

  • godwulfAZ in Scottsdale says:

    I don’t think that commenting on the cultural differences we note in the books means anyone believes anyone or thing is “deviant”, or even particularly odd; it’s just a point of discussion.

    If a Swede reads in an American novel something that they think is unusual, or which they don’t understand, and he or she comments on it, is that offensive, too? Does it mean that he or she thinks that everything Swedish is superior and correct? No, it’s only curiosity. It goes both ways.

    (On the other hand, watch what you say about peanut butter and jelly – those, as they say, are fighting words!)

    My first thought when I read about the cheese on toast for breakfast was, we don’t eat a lot of cheese in the morning…but, of course, we do, in a slightly different way. A lot of Americans eat those “fast food” biscuit, sausage, egg and cheese sandwiches, and of course there are cheese omelettes. True, we don’t generally mix it with orange marmalade, but it sounds like something a person could get used to pretty easily.

    Oh, and for the record, there WERE a couple of sodas drunk in the Trilogy. I think it was toward the end of ‘Hornet’s Nest’. Two bodyguards were on duty watching someone – Blomkvist, I think – and they were said to be drinking Cokes.

  • JKB in Seattle says:

    The references to coffee didn’t surprise me at all since I live in Seattle, we drink a lot of coffee here , too, and Seattle has a Scandinavian heritage as many of the early settlers were from there. Also the Northwest USA and Scandinavia share those long hours of darkness in the winter, which I think stimulates our caffeine consumption :-).

  • Molly in Ohio says:

    I’m American and not a coffee drinker. I didn’t find the coffee consumption in these books to be excessive. Maybe because I know how popular coffee is to some people (my immediate family!), or because, as a non-coffee-drinker, I tend to think anyone who drinks coffee on a daily basis is drinking it by the gallon. Who knows. Plus, they’re having a lot of late nights with their research, so they’re probably drinking coffee to stay awake sometimes.

    I also did not think the mentions of sandwiches were weird. Sandwiches are my default food (to be fair, actually toast is, or a sandwich on toasted bread, but peanut butter and jelly is great, or, if I’m feeling healthy, a veggie sandwich), and I assumed that the characters were so busy with their crime-solving that they didn’t have time for proper cooking. It seemed reasonable to me.

    I’m also 1/4 Norwegian, though that had nothing to do with my “American upbringing” and is irrelevant to this post.

  • AM in USA says:

    I’m American and thought that the constant use of ‘coffee and sandwiches’ in the books was humorous – not because it seems deviant or that I am being judgemental regarding Swedish caffeine intake. The books just seem to take place in a world where ‘coffee and sandwiches’ are the only thing that is consumed. It’s like if Stephen King’s characters throughout all of his books only ate Apple Pie and milk and this occurred in every chapter. I have a constant craving for coffee and sandwiches while reading these books.

    I am a yank, I drink coffee all day and into the evening (I even roast my own coffee beans) I have all my life. I also eat a lot of sandwiches–I like sour dough bread and San Francisco Salame with red onion mayo and either yellow (French’s) mustard or sarache. But I am from the Left Coast and lived in B. C. and Seattle.

    Generalizations about a country 4K miles wide and 1K miles top to bottem and 330M. pop. is bound to make people squirm like a worm.

    I felt right at home with that part of Swedish life as described by Larsson.

  • Dragonreader in Alamogordo says:

    The description of food in a book always makes it seem more real and interesting. Authors who really want to capture their audience will give them a good dose of foodporn from time to time. Enid Blyton knew that. So did J. K. Rowling, Edith Nesbit and Enid Bagnold. I don’t drink coffee myself, so found myself drinking a cup of tea along with them. And the sandwich is my favorite form of food.
