The Book Thief

Episode 10,   Apr 25, 2023, 05:00 AM

When a 30-year-old student from Malmö is arrested on suspicion of stealing a large number of books, his packed fridge is found to hide a much grislier secret.

This is a case that sent shockwaves across Sweden, terrifying everyone who read about it in the newspapers.

It begins with the disappearance of a young woman in November 1979. She’s the mother of a young son, and her parents are so worried that they repeatedly beg Malmö police for help. The woman seems to have disappeared off the face of the earth. Yet the police don’t seem to do anything.
