Not only the places named in Larsson's books have reached an unprecedented fame. Many of the objects that the Millennium characters owned or used and the food that they regularly eat have achieved cult status. These include:
Billys Pan Pizza
Billys Pan Pizza (www.dafgard.se)
The staple food of Lisbeth Salander. In her visits to 7-Eleven at Götgatan 25, she never fails to pick up a large package of these frozen pizzas. However, the specific varity is never mentioned.
When Mikael Blomkvist discovers that the telephones of some of the characters have been tapped, he sends Henry Cortez to buy a number of second-hand mobile Ericsson T10 cellular phones at Comviq , which, until near the end of the trilogy, are used buy the "good guys" of the saga to communicate.
The preferred brand of mineral water of Mikael Blomkvist is one of the most popular in northern Europe and is considered to be very good quality. It comes from a source south of Helsingborg in use since 1707. Currently, besides the classic mineral water and sparkling water, Ramlösa
also sells other flavours.
The day that Lisbeth's old computer breaks down she decides to become an Apple PowerBook G4, which was introduced in January 2001, the dates on which the plot of The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo
, takes place, and was one of the most popular laptops in the world. It makes sense that the star of Millennium
would buy this fantastic computer considering her amazing computer skills.
Palm Tungsten T3
Had it not been for her Palm Tungsten T3, Lisbeth Salander could not have contacted with the outside when she was admitted to the Sahlgrenska hospital in Gothenburg for most of the third novel.
Jura Impressa X7

When Mikael Blomkvist begins to frequent the new, empty apartment of Lisbeth Salander, he is really fascinated to discover a Jura Impressa X7 espresso machine in the kitchen. This coffee machine, although now somewhat outdated, was once the best home coffee maker.
Eucalyptus flavoured Catch Dry snus
is a favorite of Monica Figuerola, inspector of the Department of Constitutional Protection of the Swedish Security Service. However, she is not the only female character in the series addicted to this smokeless tobacco, first sold snuff on the Swedish market in 1984, as Susanne Linder, a former police officer and employee of Milton Security, also uses it.
This is the car that Lisbeth Salander bought shortly after returning from the Caribbean. This second-hand car was burgundy with an automatic transmission and she paid for it in cash. The course of events, however, results in Lisbeth barely being able to enjoy it and car is usually driven by Mikael Blomkvist.
