Olof Palme

In July 2014, BBC journalist Gordon Corera travelled to Stockholm to speak to Jan Stocklassa who had located Stieg Larsson's boxes of documents revealing the author's research into the 1986 assassination of Sweden's PM Olof Palme. In the resultant radio programme, Corera described how the documents pointed to the role of various secret services, to questions about elements of the Stockholm police, to South African dirty tricks, and ultimately back to Britain, where he interviewed Duncan Campbell. Named in the programme by Corera as murder suspects were Bertil Wedin and Craig Williamson.[2]


In a document from the sixth Integrity Initiative Leak, Euan Grant noted that Corera was "frequently in contact".
