The Other Gunman

Before the Norwegian mass-murderer and terrorist A.B.B. turned up on the scene on July 22, 2011, I was telling you about a gunman in Malmö (Sweden´s third largest city) who seemed to chose his victims among the.large immigrant population of Malmö.

When I last reported about this now 40 y.o. serial-killer on December 21, 2010, (More Charges Brought Against Gunman) he was suspected of three murders and ten attempted murders stretching from 2003 until 2010.

The laborious and complicated investigation has now been concluded and the prosecutor now charges him of three murders and twelve attempted murders. A further two investigated suspicions of murders/attempted murder had to be dropped from the charges as the prosecutor believed he could not conclusively prove the gunman´s guilt in those cases.

The trial started on Monday at Malmö District Court and is expected to go on for two months.

The Malmö-gunman has pleaded not guilty to the charges.

Sweden has strict regulations concerning weapons but somehow this xenophobe succeeded in procuring a licence in 2002 and started killing only six months after he got his permit. The gunman used a Glock pistol to commit his crimes but with different barrels in an attempt to make it more difficult for the police to trace the bullets to the same gun.

The Norwegian mass-murderer A.B.B. mentioned the Malmö-gunman and a group of German neo-Nazis as examples of "patriots" taking up arms to fight multiculturalism in Europe, but the two are not believed to be linked with each other.
