For Mr Kinnaman, casual elegance is a look which works well for him. “I like to treat myself to dressy sneakers,” he says. “That’s my luxury.” For him the route to elegance is not only through wearing a suit: “I only wear those if it’s disrespectful not to.” Tasteful nonchalance is the way.

Mr Kinnaman came to prominence for his lead role in the 2010 Swedish film Easy Money, which won him a Guldbagge Award in the "Best Actor" category. He then starred as the detective Stephen Holder in TV series The Killing in 2011 and then joined the House Of Cards ensemble. This August, he’ll star in the film Suicide Squad, a DC Comics feature.

He wasn’t born into acting. Aged 16, he dropped out of school and started hanging out with a gang of petty criminals in what he jokingly calls “Southside Stockholm”. “I had a lot of anger in me,” he says.

After a year spent in Texas, staying out of trouble, followed by a couple of aimless years travelling the world, he gave acting a shot. It was a revelation. He won a place at the prestigious Stockholm Academy of Dramatic Arts and quickly found direction, shooting to instant stardom in Sweden. And then he threw his hat in the Hollywood ring.

LA was alienating at first: “Everything is a plan here, it’s not spontaneous, so I felt I was always visiting,” he says. But then he moved to Venice, and life started to fall into place. “I’m on foot, I got my bike, I got my spots, people know me at my favourite restaurant. It’s more like home.”

When MR PORTER met with Mr Kinnaman he was preoccupied with bulking up for his latest role. “I need to make 215lb by November,” he says, by way of explanation. “In my opening scene I come out in a loin cloth and fight six people. And so at, 5.30pm, after the shoot, it was straight to a restaurant for lunch. His second of the day.
