The assassination in 1986 of Olof Palme, a distinguished international statesman, remains to this day an unsolved mystery. While in some ways resembling the puzzling features inherent in the assassination of President John F. Kennedy, the continuing mystery has a deeper significance that the authors of this work seek to probe and elucidate. Any examination of the Palme assassination has to be conducted with reference to an extremely complex set of international factors. It is in this milieu that Palme found a special role for himself as an international statesman, seeking to mediate some of the lesser though deadly wars, in particular the Iran/Iraq conflict. The authors examine all the evidence, present their own case on these arcane matters, leaving it to the readers to come to their own conclusions.

Reviews

“H.H.A. Cooper and Lawrence J. Redlinger, experts on assaination, intllignce, and terrorism, previously collaborated to write Catching Spies: Principles and Practices of Counterepionage. In this new book, they build on their experience to provide readers with a masterful discussion of the mystery of who killed Olof Palme. They investigate why the case is still unsolved, debunk old myths, and suggest new leads. Undoubtedly, this work will spark more investigation into a classic case of assassination.” – Jennifer S.
