Blocket Easter Eggs Contest is a Swedish online market for buying and selling goods. They are very big and probably exist in your country too under a different name.

They are now hiring people and what better way to recruit programmers than setting up a contest? They have hidden 10 easter eggs (geeky riddles) in the guts of their website and the challenge is to find them and provide the right answers.

Me and a friend of mine have found them all. We also found out that the last egg has a follow-up task which you are not required to complete. However, I have completed it and I will post my answer here after the contest ends on the 7:th of April.
