Who is shooting prime ministers?

The hatred of Olof Palme was intense in several camps when he was killed in 1986, and the theories around who would remove him are many.  

Witnesses who saw the assassination of Prime Minister Olof Palme on February 28, 1986, said that the killer was wearing a long, dark coat, that he was moving calmly, and that he disappeared immediately. According to the autopsy report, Palme was shot with precision at a distance of 20 centimeters, with special ammunition that can penetrate bulletproof vests. It all appeared to be professionally done. After my article in the previous issue of Ny Tid ("Was the murder of Palme a regular coup?"), I have received a number of questions. In the article, I wrote that there are many who still believe that it must have been the petty criminal junkie Christer Pettersson, a "lone curler" in a blue bubble jacket, who shot the prime minister. . .
