Sven Olof Morgan Andersson was a Swedish Social Democratic politician.[1] He was Minister for Defence from 1957 to 1973, and as Minister for Foreign Affairs from 1973 to 1976. Andersson was also Minister of Communications from 1951 to 1957.

He was as a strong anti-Communist and military hawk.


He was a key player in the build-up of IB, exposed in the 1973 IB affair, which revealed a secret military intelligence organization conducting large-scale surveillance of Swedish citizens.

As Defence Minister, Andersson withheld information from his Prime Ministers (Tage Erlander, later Olof Palme. According to Robert Bathurst, Bobby Ray Inman was able to make a "deal with the Swedes" about deploying very secret hydrophones run by the Americans, and this had certainly facilitated his carrier, Bathurst said. Inman later reached several top jobs in the intelligence services. The hydrophones, placed just inside Swedish waters, kept tab on Soviet submarine activities in the Baltic.[2]

Andersson was among the editors-in-chief of Stockholms-Tidningen, a social democrat newspaper.[3]
