stairway to escape

On February 28, 1986 Olof Palme's assassin fled up these stairs.
Immediately below is an interesting tunnel.
Here's a view in the opposite direction, towards the place of the murder.

de trappor som leder till Malmskillnadsgatan och försvann" (HD)

Just like an old agent movie... I guess you've been searching for this shot? ;-) Very good!

I browsed the BBC link you provided... so the suspect was later cleared of the charges? So technically, it's an unsolved case?

Stefan: Thanks. Now that you mention it, I think I did spot a figure in a trenchcoat lurking somewhere in the shadows... :)

Z: Yes. He was finally cleared by our Supreme Court in 1997 and died in 2004. The police "believe" they know but the investigation was mismanaged and they haven't been able to come up with and solid evidence. The murder will be barred under the statute of limitations four years from now.
