Girl with the Dragon Tattoo Character or Ikea Furniture?

Today’s game is very simple: I give you a name, and you guess whether it is the name of a character from one the Girl with the Dragon Tattoo (even you, The Castle of Air that was Exploded) books or if it a piece of Ikea furniture. But first, the seizure-inducing, but entirely compelling trailer.

Game on! (answers below each clue in white, highlight to see)

    Krogstad is the antagonist from Henrik Ibsen’s A Doll’s House, which is Norwegian, not Swedish, you racist.

To recap, the Ikea ones are (highlight below to see):

Ektorp, Karlstad, Lack, Orgel, Aspelund, Trondheim, Engan, Alina, Indira, Kvart, Fillsta, Hölmo, Henrika, and Ofelia. Malm is both.

How many did you get right?

1-5: You’ve turned in a performance that is statistically significant in its badness. Impressive.

6-10: Also pretty terrible.You must’ve let your subscription to Expo run out years ago.

11-15: Again, in this range, it’s probable you actually knew none of the right answers. Good on you for continuing to read this far.

16-20: Well done, you’re a real Kalle Blomkvist!

21-24: Did you have a feud with a pompous New Yorker critic recently?

25-27: Your closet was already loaded with Lisbeth Salander clothes even before H&M decided to market a line in her honor.

28: You must be very lonely and very Chinese.

    Erin, I challenge you! Not to brag but.. I must say several recent trips to Ikea + having read the books + having seen the Swedish movie versions + having run lines with Daniel Craig and Rooney Mara (one of those four things isn’t true..maybe the reading part?) … well, all that really paid off! My score was “tjugofem”, which in Swedish is a number worth two ten kronor coins and one five kronor coin. I bet you could still beat me, though..

    I could’ve sworn there was a Trondheim..

    you’re thinking Sondheim, maybe? it’s a plant, to trip up the pop-cultured… sneaky. my score was as many sickles as there are in a galleon plus two…
