Leif GW Persson
The ‘police professor’ and detective story writer Leif GW Persson dismissed Christer Andersson immediately as the potential perpetrator. He made following statement to the two newspapers Aftonbladet and Expressen : “He was just a fool who tried to make himself noticed”
According to the police source of Paul Smith he was both “intelligent and manipulating” and Smith’s source has met Christer Andersson in real life unlike Persson.
Leif GW Persson insist on his conspiracy theory that is based on the witness ‘Madaleine’ who walked by a man 11:20 pm on the night of the murder. This man was walking down the steps from Malmskillnadsgatan towards Kungsgatan. Her testimony was later removed from the case according to Persson.
According to this theory the murderer should have walked 89 steps up from the crime scene towards Malmskillnadsgatan, then turned south and after that walked down another set of steps to get to Kungsgatan.
The murder took place one and half minute later so no wonder that the testimony was removed. But maybe she didn’t know what time it was?
True but then how is Persson to know that this person came from the crime scene. We only know for sure that he came from Malmskillnadsgatan. Before he reached the steps he could have come from a dozen different places.
The ‘substance’ of Persson’s conspiracy theory is based on a probability between zero and eight percent.
