Olof Palmes Bodyguards
The roster of the bodyguards in February 1986
What is stopping one or two professional assassins to knock on the door of the Palme’s residence and kill the couple there? Or pick the lock and wait for them till they showed up? They would be much more vulnerable there compared to the street.
One would naturally believe that he had bodyguards on the front step or in the apartment when he was home. Surveillance would reveal that this was rarely the case. The following is proven by a log book kept by Palme’s secretary, Lisbeth Palme and information from the bodyguards : 
Saturday February 1. The bodyguards did not see Palme this day or the next. Palme visited an American friend from the Arms Reduction Commission at 11.15 am.

He walked home and arrived at 6:30 pm. The Palme couple left their home at 8:35 pm and Palme was murdered around 11:21 pm.
An overview of January gives more or less the same picture . Usually Palme was without bodyguards when he was off duty or otherwise spent his time in his flat on Västerlånggatan 31. These routines would have been known by a half-decent hit man. If one of the hit men was from the secret service called Säpo the entire organisation who planned this murder would have known this. That is a guarantee.
The bodyguards were from Säpo.
