Swedish PM murder remains a mystery | AFP

Chief Prosecutor Krister Petersson tells a press conference that the main suspect in the 1986 unsolved murder of Swedish prime minister Olof Palme is Stig Enstrom, a Swedish man who died in 2000 known as ‘Skandia Man’. Because the suspect is dead, the investigation will now be closed, Petersson says. Olof Palme, a charismatic yet divisive Social Democrat prime minister, was shot dead outside a cinema in Stockholm in February 1986, in a crime which rocked Sweden’s usually peaceful and open society.
