"I happened to be arrested, now I'm hardened, but it could just as well has happened to someone else."
"I haven't shot anybody"
"If I would have murdered Olof Palme, I think I would have been able to keep almost as straight a face. But only almost ...only almost."
"I, the killer and one more knows who shot Palme."
(According to a friend). Aftonbladet, 1997
"I could have been the one who did it. I don't think so, but it can't be ruled out."
"I was the one who did it..."
(According to an old friend). Aftonbladet, 1988
"It was for the money."
Petterson retracts his confession on television, 2001
"I have shot Olof Palme, but there is no proof. They can't convict me, because they'll never find the murder weapon."

It should be noted that all of his actual "confessions" were made to a friend of his. Over the years the media has also been highly critizised for
