The cover-up of the murder of Olof Palme

Gunnar Wall is an award-winning Swedish journalist, who has written several books about the murder of Olof Palme on Sveavägen in Stockholm, 1986. On Gunnar Wall’s blog, you can read the remarkable story (in Swedish) of how a man named Ebbe Carlsson strived to establish a sham solution to the unsolved murder and how this cover-up was tied to the highest authorities – even to Olof Palme’s successor.

Many people in Sweden have heard about Ebbe Carlsson. In 1988 he was designated “the Swede of the year”. He died in 1992 after explaining on TV that he had AIDS. However, not so many have understood what his role really was regarding the murder investigation and the implications of that. The recent Swedish Television documentary about the Ebbe Carlsson affair did not help much to bring any real understanding either. On the contrary, the documentary appears to have tried to obfuscate and gloss over.

That is why Gunnar Wall’s comments on the documentary are so important. His conclusion is:

Much points to that if the deed on Sveavägen had been investigated without preconceptions, it had been found that Olof Palme became a victim of the Cold War because, by the end of his life, he so unambiguously chose to work for disarmament instead of secret cooperation with the military alliance NATO. And such a possible background to the murder was not even allowed to be hinted.

The way the murder investigation has been handled is a strong indication that Gunnar Wall is correct.

There is more information about Ebbe Carlsson pointing in the same direction on the web page of Anders Jallai (in Swedish), where you can also watch a discussion with Olof Frånstedt, who was a chief at the Swedish Security Service SÄPO.

Does Swedish military participate in illegal arms exports?

Today Hans Andersson published an article in Swedish about suspected arms trafficking to Iraq during recent years. If that is true, it would probably not be the first time the Swedish government/military is involved in serious crime. Other cases include for example alledged complicity in outsourced torture and war of aggression in Libya. As usual with such cases, it seems impossible for anyone to be held accountable.

In some cases, the Swedish police is even suspected of covering up the crimes. The author Anders Jallai has written about one such case, where the journalist Cats Falck and her friend Lena Gräns were found dead in 1985. When the women disappeared in 1984, Cats Falck was investigating arms trafficking from Sweden. Read more on the web site of jallai and the background material part 1, 2, 3 and 4 (links to content in Swedish). Jallai’s books are fiction, but it is widely believed that his writing actually contains much truth.

Suppression of information

In Turkey you can nowadays not access Wikipedia. In China you cannot access Facebook etc, unless you use VPN or another way around the blocks. In Russia, a new censorship law bans VPNs.

But what is the situation like for the rest of us, living in the “free world”? Not everyone has realized how bad it is, but information can be suppressed here also. However, the methods are obviously different. Just ignoring information, which does not fit the official narrative, seems to be one popular method.

For example, alternative media has recently reported about how the English translation Journalists for Hire of Udo Ulfkotte’s bestseller Gekaufte Journalisten appears to have been suppressed. James F. Tracy, who has worked as Associate Professor of Journalism and Media Studies at Florida Atlantic University, wrote in Global Research about how the book has been ignored by mainstream media and that the publisher Tayen Lane has removed any reference to the title from its website. Tracy suggests that the book would be “required reading for college students—and particularly those studying in journalism programs”. For those who are interested to read the book, it can still be ordered in German.

Some other examples we have earlier reported about on this blog is how Swedish military museums have treated the history of a shot-down DC-3 and submarine incidents. Regarding the latter, we have not yet seen any reply from Ingvar Carlsson on an opinion piece in Swedish.


Unlike NATO, which was more focused on defense, the Warsaw Pact had detailed attack plans“, claims a sign in the Swedish Naval Museum (Marinmuseum). There is so much credible Information available that does not fit the museum’s narrative, but it is obviously ignored by the museum.

Peace activist banned

Under cover of darkness a Terminal High Altitude Area Defense (THAAD) missile defense system was installed in Seongju City, ROK, earlier this year, in spite of daily and growing opposition from local villagers and their nation-wide supporters and without official deliberation by South Korea’s governing bodies.

This morning Ms Juyeon Rhee was stopped in New York from boarding her Delta flight to Incheon. The ban was imposed by South Korean officials. Juyeon Rhee is the coordinator for the Stop THAAD in Korea (STIK) peace delegation.
