Default Einstein'* riddle - Who has the Fish?

Einstein wrote this riddle last century and said that 98% of the world’* population would not be able to solve it.

• There are 5 houses that are each a different colour.
• There is a person of a different nationality in each house.
• The 5 owners drink a certain drink. They each smoke a certain brand of cigarettes and also have a certain pet. No owner has the same pet, smokes the same brand of cigarettes nor drinks the same drink.
• The question is. “Who has the fish?”

CLUES

1. The British man lives in the red house.
2. The Swedish man has a dog for a pet.
3. The Danish man drinks tea.
4. The green house is to the left of the white house.
5. The owner of the green house drinks coffee.
6. The person that smokes Pall Mall has a bird.
7. The owner of the yellow house smokes Dunhill.
8. The person that lives in the middle house drinks milk.
9. The Norwegian lives in the first house.
10. The person that smokes Blend, lives next to the one that has a cat.
11. The person that has a horse lives next to the one that smokes Dunhill.
12. The one that smokes Bluemaster drinks beer.
13. The German smokes Prince.
14. The Norwegian lives next to a blue house.

I stopped when I figured out all the pets, I too think the German has the fish.

Other facts known about the German for me:
Drinks coffee
Lives in the green house
Smokes Prince
and of course has a fish


That was surprisingly fun, and I hope I got it right, just so I can say Im in the top 2%


EDIT: DId some googling, wont say how I fared so as not too spoil this too soon.

I may print this off and share it, I really enjoyed it, thanks for posting.
