Fans of the late crime novelist Stieg Larsson are getting lost in the Swedish countryside, searching for the quaint town of Hedestad featured in "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo."

The problem is, it doesn't exist.

But international readers of Larsson's best-selling "Millennium" crime trilogy could be excused for thinking otherwise, because most locations in the books are authentic.

Some of them include the Kaffebar cafe in Stockholm, a favorite haunt of Larsson's fictional journalist Mikael Blomqvist and the Kvarnen bar, where Larsson has tattooed computer hacker Lisbeth Salander spending evenings with her friends from the rock band Evil Fingers.

So how long will it take for some quaint town to rename itself Hedestad?
