The 20th anniversary of the Palme assassination is coming up soon. Swedish newspaper Expressen has right now some "sensational news" about some guy testifying on his death bed about the Palme Murder case. He claim that he knows why Swedish Primeminister Olof Palme was shot and he knows who pulled the trigger. He said Christer Petterson shot Palme by mistake. Christer was going to assassinate a drug dealer for some reason and he knew that his victim was gonna come by right at this place. But Palme turned out to come by just before the intended victim. Palme was dressed just like the drug dealer and then... BAM!........ by mistake... just like that... the same dress as the drug dealer... nothing to see.... stop investigating...
Of course, needless to say I don't believe for a second this claim or "evidence". I am not convinced that Christer Petterson shot Palme at all. Who did it? There are quite a few conspiracy theories out there in this case. PKK did it. KGB did it. Stasi did it. CIA did it. His wife did it. His son did it. And so on... Did Stig Bergling pull the trigger?

Olof Palme

Christer Petterson died in 2004. He had just said live on the radio that he was going to tell Palme´s son "something important". The next day (or same day) he was suddenly found dead. They claim he died under tragic coincidents and circumstances during a epilepsi attack or something like that. Of course they killed him too (I think). And now they try once again to pin Christer Petterson to the murder of Olof Palme :shk:


Christer Petterson

Some facts:
  • Olof Palme was shot and killed February 28th 1986
  • The killer(s) have still not been found.
  • Five years from now the killer(s) will go free even if (s)he/they testifies.
  • About 130 swedes have testified so far that they shot Palme.

    "About 130 swedes have testified so far that they shot Palme."

    I was on the impression that the number was something like twenty, but 130!!!

    My take is that it had to be Petterson. Didn't one of his drinking buddies say that Petterson said so himself?

    I loved the conspiracy film though. That British assassin was creepy as hell.

    I belive it was mossad that was behind it. Palme loudly voiced his support for PLO.
    I also accuse mossad of being behind the 9/11 attack because of what withnesses have said. Remember mossad's motto; 'by way of deception thou shalt do war'.
    With the help of extremly active israel lobbyists they can do anything they want and get away with it. Even in Sweden.

    Ghaele, If only people would allow themselves to see the evil that is shrouded in Mossad, Likkud and AIPAC. They orchestrate virtually all terror and blame it on others.

    I don't think voicing support for PLO would be a good enough reason to assassinate a Prime Minister. And what about Palme's connection with the Rothschilds? Baron Edmond James (Avrahim Binyamin) de Rothschild is known as "Father of the Jewish Settlement" (Israel)...


    Reports at the time claimed that Palme was having an affair with British/American millionairess Emma Rothschild and that it could have been through this that his movements were monitored. One police theory was that the assassin and his back-up could have gained knowledge about Palme's movements by tapping her phone.

    One report claimed that Swedish detectives were seeking to interview Emma Rothschild when they received instructions from high places not to pursue this line of enquiry. Palme's alleged affair with Emma Rothschild was, according to political sources, "a public secret" in Stockholm, in government, diplomatic and media circles.

    Ten months after the killing, at least 12 top detectives investigating the case resigned. According to a Swedish intelligence source, police claimed "political pressure" was being exerted, to block progress of the investigations. The Swedish government, it was claimed, was "terrified" of the international consequences should the police name the assassin and "reveal the forces behind him."

    Emma Rothschild is now a member of the Board of the Olof Palme Memorial Fund...

    Yesterday, they found the gun who killed Palme. It was found in a lake by a Swedish newspaper after they got a tip. They handed the gun over to the police who has confirmed that it is the right gun.

    I found it in english... Swedish police hope gun will solve Palme killing


    Swedish police said that a revolver found in Sweden may have been used in the 1986 murder of Swedish prime minister Olof Palme, sparking hopes the two-decade-old mystery may finally be solved.

    The weapon -- a .357 Magnum Smith and Wesson revolver -- was used in a robbery on a post office in the town of Mockfjaerd in central Sweden in 1983, the head of the Palme investigation team, Stig Edqvist, told a press conference. He said tests on a bullet fired from the gun during the raid matched those found at the scene of Palme's murder, suggesting the bullets in both instances were fired from the same weapon. "We can confirm that the weapon handed in to us is identical to ... the Mockfjaerd weapon," Edqvist said, adding it had the right serial number.

    The gun was on Tuesday sent to Sweden's forensics laboratory, SKL, for analysis. Forensic experts were however sceptical as to whether any evidence could be gleaned from the weapon. "I have a hard time believing that we can test fire the weapon if it has been in the water for 23 years," the head of SKL's chemical and technical unit, Roger Carlsson, told Swedish news agency TT.

    A good point. Can they test fire a weapon which has been in the water for 23 years?

    edit to add: Palme was killed 20½ years ago (not 23), so it could not have been in the water for more than that...

    The Palme case has just been solved again. It turns out that Christer Petterson had a secret girlfriend. This secret girlfriend has now given to a Swedish journalist at Aftonbladet some love letters which Christer is supposed to have written to her. In one of those letters Christer Petterson "confesses". He says he killed Palme. He also told this secret girlfriend face-to-face. In fact, she claims said that Christer Petterson was planning to tell Palme's son that he killed Palme. But unfortunately, he died before he got a chance to tell him. Very unfortunate he died on that day. So, it turned out to be Christer Petterson all along. And now Palme's killer is dead, so there's no need to investigate anymore. Or...?

    There are many articles in Swedish, Norwegian and Danish, but I also found one in English:

    Palm e's murderer was Pettersson after all, his girlfriend confirms

    Feb 4, 2007

    The murderer of then Swedish prime Minister Olof Palme in 1986 was, indeed, Christer Pettersson

    Aftonbladet quoted his girlfriend as saying Pettersson had told her he had wanted to 'help' a friend who wanted to avenge a perceived tax injustice by the Palme government.

    Latest news on the Palme case

    Stasi launched their own investigation, just four hours after the murder of Olof Palme. After a few months, they identified a suspect, Amir Heidari. It turns out that Heidari was actually questioned by the swedish police, but he turned out to "have an alibi". A number of people said that they were with him at the time of the murder, so he was "quickly ruled out" from further investigation. The swedes never knew about the Stasi investigation, until now.

    Stasi investigated Palme's murder

    15th September 2007

    The Stasi, East Germany's secret police, carried out its own investigation into the 1986 murder of Swedish Prime Minister Olof Palme, according to documents seen by Swedish newspaper Expressen.

    The Stasi set up its investigation into Palme's death just hours after he was killed in Stockholm on 28th February 1986, Expressen reports. After a few months the East German investigators identified a suspect: Amir Heidari, a Swedish resident claimed to be at the head of one of Europe's largest people-smuggling rings.


    "We questioned him. A number of people said they were with him here in Sweden on 28th February and 1st March. He was therefore quickly ruled out."

    Palme Bought Sex From a 14-Year-Old in 1977?

    A woman who used to work as a prostitute now claims that Olof Palme was one of her customers 30 years ago. This article (in english) mentions Olof Palme in connection with the case, but it doesn't mention that he might have been one of the customers. However, Swedish and Norwegian speaking media now tells this woman's story about Palme being one of her customers when she was a 14-year-old prostitute.

    Politicians named in prostitution scandal

    In November 1977 newspaper Dagens Nyheter rocked the foundations of Sweden's political establishment by publishing allegations citing Justice Minister Lennart Geijer as one of the customers.

    The newspaper claimed as its source a report in which chief of police Carl Persson informed Prime Minister Olof Palme of the involvement of politicians in the prostitution scandal.

    But Palme vehemently denied the allegations, accusing Dagens Nyheter of aggravated libel. The newspaper was forced into a retreat and two days after the publication Lennart Geijer received an official apology.

    It later emerged however that, a few minor details aside, the newspaper's assertions had in fact been largely correct. Over the years, there has been much speculation regarding the identities of those who made use of the brothel's services.

    Please visit the link provided for the complete story.

    Palme blamed the newspaper for lying in 1977, and managed to get them to make an official apology for their claims of the Minister of Justice (not Palme) being one of the customers. If this woman's allegation is true, then Palme also had a personal interest in putting a lid on this story in 1977, as he may himself have been a customer...

    Here's an article in norwegian:
    Dagbladet: - Palme var min kunde (translates to: Palme was my customer)

    CIA + Olof Palme

    A previously restricted US government document has been declassified. It appears that the CIA tried to recruit Olof Palme. Palme also gave CIA a list of names of communist sympathizers in Sweden.

    CIA attempted to recruit young Olof Palme

    A declassified U.S. government document shows that Palme passed information to the American Embassy on communist sympathizers in Sweden in 1950.

    According to Dagens Nyheter, the CIA was also actively recruiting the young activist as an agent for the U.S. intelligence service.

    Please visit the link provided for the complete story.

    Here is Palme protesting against the Vietnam war in 1968. This protest led to the greatest diplomatic crisis ever between Sweden and the US. The US embassador in Sweden went home in protest, and the US also stopped an arms deal with Sweden.

    Palme's wife "identified" Christer Petterson as being the assassin. Here's Stig Bergling. He does look a bit like CP, doesn't he? Did Palme's wife identify the wrong man? And considering that Stig B. was near (or at?) the murder scene at the time of the murder (with police escort, because he was getting married the next day), and he also managed to "escape" from prison shortly afterwards and flee to Russia (as payment for the murder?)...

    Wikipedia: Stig Bergling (in english)

    He was employed at SÄPO, the Swedish Security Service, and worked in the surveillance department.


    On December 7, 1979 he was convicted in Sweden and sentenced to life in prison for treason.


    On October 6, 1987 while on leave from the correctional institution in Norrköping, Sweden, he and his wife, Elisabeth, managed to escape.


    Here's Christer Petterson:

    Wikipedia: Olof Palme assassination

    Walking home from the Grand Cinema with his wife Lisbet Palme on the central Stockholm street Sveavägen, close to midnight on February 28, 1986, the couple were attacked by a lone gunman. Palme was fatally shot in the back at close range at 23:21 CET. A second shot wounded Mrs Palme.

    Pettersson had reported being harassed by the police on September 15, the day before he was found with head injuries, with rumors (unsubstantiated) circulating that he was a victim of police violence.


    Shortly before Pettersson was taken to hospital, he had contacted the son of Olof Palme, Mårten Palme, explaining he had something to tell the family. Palme said he was willing to meet Pettersson if he was ready to confess to the murder. But the meeting did not take place, and what Pettersson had to tell was never revealed.

    But Bergling was never a suspect in the Palme case, as he had an "alibi". He was officially in prison at the time. A perfect assassin...

    I've heard that the Swedish police had trained their dogs to attack, when they heard the command "Olof Palme!". That's how "popular" Palme was...

    posted on Oct, 24 2008 @ 04:33 PM
    Here's an article from The New York Times in 1987. Kind of ironic, if it turns out that Bergling was the assassin...

    Spy's Escape Stirs Furor in Sweden

    Published: October 14, 1987

    Prime Minister Ingvar Carlsson has called the escape ''extremely serious'' and has ordered a top-level investigation into the affair, saying it underlined significant flaws in police operations and the penal system. Palme Killing Still Unsolved

    The Bergling affair is another setback for Sweden's longstanding reputation as a nation of thoroughness and efficiency. In particular, it is an embarrassment for the Swedish police and security forces, who have still not solved the assassination of Prime Minister Olof Palme in February 1986.


    Because of a mix-up, there was a delay of another 10 hours before a national police alert was issued and border authorities were notified.

    10 hours head start. Just like other people who did dirty work got 'time to run'. Amazing read, absolutely amazing.

    This is important regarding the identification of Christer Pettersson.

    Christer Pettersson - Wikipedia

    He was picked out from a police lineup by Mrs Palme. The original tip-off leading to the incrimination of Pettersson has been described by some as very dubious.


    On several occasions Pettersson pointed out that he himself was a "Social Democrat", and liked Olof Palme. In 1998, the Supreme Court rejected a prosecutor's appeal to retry Pettersson citing that evidence was not strong enough to place him at the scene of the shooting.


    Stig Bergling

    Christer Pettersson

    I wonder who palme's wife would have pointed at, if Stig Bergling had been present at this line-up...
