5.0 out of 5 stars The biggest court scandal in Sweden, 27 Feb. 2014
By 
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Thomas Quick: The Making of a Serial Killer (Kindle Edition)
This is an indispensable book on what arguably is the biggest judicial scandal in Sweden after the war. A severely drugged and overtherapized man succeeded in confessing and being convicted of nine murders, none of which he had committed and had not even been near the places. What is worse, Sweden's highest overseer of the legality of decisions still believes that the courts did not do anything wrong and even insinuates that the man might be guilty. Hannes Råstam was an investigative journalist who became interested in the matter, looked at all the facts, and was able to show that all the judgments were wrong and single handedly achieved the annulment of the judgments. Unfortunately, Råstam died before the matter was completely closed. Thomas Quick a.k.a. Sture Bergwall (his original and present name) is still kept in the mental hospital. because the hospital does not want to admit its mistakes. There is a parallel book by Dan Josefsson (in swedish only for now) which looks more closely into the second scandal, that of Quick's treatment by psychoanalysts who believed in recovered memories and duped the police investigators to believe that his memories were real (although they has a built-in interest to slant get him convicted).
Warmly recommended!
