Pioneer's much-missed TV technology haunts new Nordic noir bestseller

During a tender interlude on p361 of The Phantom, Harry Hole contemplates the incomparable quality of his lover with the following paragraph...

'She stroked his shoulder, up as far as his neck and back again. Over his chest. And he thought she must be able to feel his heart beating and that she was like the Pioneer TV they had stopped producing because it was too good, and you could see it was good because the black bit of the picture was so black.'

Who would have guessed that Oslo's leading fictional detective was also a big AV fan?
