The Eddie series (Swedish: Eddieserien) is a book series written by Viveca Lärn (earlier Viveca Sundvall) about Eddie. He is a boy in early primary school. The books were originally published between 1991 and 2001. They make up a spinoff series set in the Mimmi universe. The books are told from a third-person perspective. The main character Eddie is the brother of Mimmi's friend Anders. Eddie's father is an alcoholic when the stories begin.[1]

In 1994, a telvision series based on the books and named Håll huvudet kallt was produced. It aired as Sveriges Television's Christmas calendar that year.
