Radio Sweden’s special programme on the 20th anniversary of his assassination.

On a cold Friday night on 28 February 1986, Sweden’s prime minister Olof Palme was gunned down on a Stockholm street as he walked with his wife from a cinema.
The murder, which shocked both Sweden and the outside world, still remains unsolved. Who was Olof Palme and who would have been  interersted in silencing him and why?

Olof Palme was also a very controversial leader. While his supporters adored him his opponents described him as a class traitor.
In this special programme on the 20th anniversary of his murder, we look at Olof Palme the man, the politician and the statesman with the help of those who knew him at close range and journalists who followed his career.
We ask the question - why was Olof Palme adored by so many and loathed by not so few? And will Swedes ever find out who assassinated their prime minister?
