After 34 years of conspiracy theories, Swedes have finally been told who killed Olof Palme, their prime minister until his violent death on a Stockholm street corner. At a highly anticipated press briefing on Wednesday, prosecutor Krister Petersson said the assassin was Stig Engstrom, a former employee of Skandia who committed suicide two decades ago. Engstrom had worked as a graphic designer for the firm. Because he’s no longer alive, the case will now be closed. With the announcement, police hope that the mystery and intrigue surrounding Palme’s 1986 murder have finally been put to rest.
