Paolo Roberto

Paolo Roberto:

was known in Sweden as a boxer;
appears as a character in Stieg Larsson's second novel, The Girl Who Played with Fire;
plays himself in the film of the novel.

Thus, the novel describes him performing actions that he had not performed in real life but did later perform in the dramatization of the text of the novel.

A fascinating fiction-reality interaction.
