Fair enough.  This one was

On the previous page, you saw that the only gaps in the table where a Swede and a dog will fit are in houses 4 and 5.  The other houses already have nationalities other than Swedish or pets other than dogs.  The only houses that have gaps where a Blue Master-smoking Beer-drinking person will fit are in houses 2 and 5.  The other houses already have other smokes or other drinks.

So the question becomes: Is the Swede the one who smokes Blue Master and drinks Beer?  If so, then the only place where a dog-owning beer-drinking Blue Master-smoking Swede can fit is in house 5.  The hint on the previous page tells you to use information from rules 3 and 13 to answer this question.

The answer is yes, because all the other nationalities either smoke or drink something different.
