The Unlikely Murderer

Based on the 2018 book by Thomas Petterson called Den Osannolika Mördaren (The Unlikely Assasin) about the assassination of Swedish Prime Minister Olof Palme in 1986. The limited series explores Petterson’s notes that Stig Engstrom, a man known as Skandia Man as he worked for the Skandia insurance company that was located nearby to the murder scene, was responsible. Initially, Engstrom had been interviewed as the first witness on the scene and later briefly as a suspect but quickly discounted from the list of suspects by the police at the time. He was later (in 2020) declared responsible by the force, however, he died in 2000. The series explores what may have happened along the lines of the popular belief that he was the culprit.
