  • Tobias Priemer, a mathematician, won in the individual category in Sweden's first-ever jigsaw puzzle championship over the weekend in Gothenburg.

  • He put together a 500-piece puzzle of a turtle underwater in one hour, two minutes and 37 seconds, with just a 23-second lead over the runner-up.

  • Priemer, whose family has done puzzles for as long as he can remember, tells Radio Sweden how he prepared for the championships, how he sorts puzzle pieces and what he enjoys about puzzling.
