An "under-the-covers" investigation of the strong, silent, nordic type

A cyber fairy tale
Once upon a time there was an American girl named Curiosa in Stockholm who wrote a blog entry about a vibrator called I Rub My Fishie. Then a boy called Tonto terrorized her blog and called her a bimbo.
And then they lived happily ever after.
I am just dreading having to answer the question, "So how did you two meet?"
Kommissarie F. Curiosa is a female detective in her mid-twenties delving into the baffling yet somehow tantalizing mystery of the Swedish male in Sweden's chilly capital city. She's a modern-day Mata Hari, infiltrating the grisly underworld of dating in a foreign country.
During the course of her investigation, Curiosa discovered that blogs about dating are an excellent way to get dates. Of course, none of her dates were actually with the strong, silent, Nordic type. Her romantic attention was soon captivated to a fellow expat blogger, who took the interesting and unconventional approach of writing odes to Ullrick. Turns out, the way to a girl's heart is through her cat.
This resulted in a suspension of Curiosa's investigation of the strong, silent Nordic type, but not to fear, her new relationship provides plenty of 'blog fodder', much to the dismay of her significant other.
