The verdict is due Wednesday in one of Sweden’s most expensive trials and criminal investigations ever. Altogether there are 20 defendants charged with crimes including murder, kidnapping and extortion.

The case against the so-called Södertälje Network has been called Sweden’s first Mafia trial. Many of the accused have been behind bars for almost two years, while the investigation continued.

Half of the defendants were released from custody prior to the delivery of the verdict, which Swedish Radio News says could indicate either that the court will find them innocent, or that their sentences will be less than the time already served.

Central to the investigation has been the 2010 murder of two brothers in Södertälje, one a well-known member of the local soccer football team.
