Nordic Responses

Abstract

When the Swedish Prime Minister Olof Palme was assassinated outside a cinema in central Stockholm in 1986, it was one the few times in modern history that the inhabitants of a Nordic country had been confronted with deadly violence directed against a political leader. The murder of Olof Palme shocked the nation, but it was not until the same tragic scenario repeated itself in September 2003 — with the killing of Foreign Minister Anna Lindh — that the Swedish people started questioning some of the freedoms of open democracy that the country has cherished for the past hundred years.
