Gunnar Wall

To English Speaking Readers

I am the author of a number of non-fiction books, among them four books on the murder of Swedish Prime Minister Olof Palme.

My latest book is Rättsskandalen Olof Palme ("The Olof Palme Legal Scandal"). The theme of the book is the latest years of the Palme investigation, culminating in the formal closing of the case and the labelling of the deceased Stig Engström as the prime suspect.

The book shows that the case against Engström is extremely weak and it also shows that the prosecutor and the police halted an inquiry regarding the possible involvement of the Swedish Stay Behind network in the murder.

Another of my recent books is Andra världskriget och myten om det goda kriget ("World War II and the Myth of the Good War") It was published in April 2020.

My first book on the Palme case, Mörkläggning - statsmakten och Palmemordet ("Blackout - the Government and the Palme Murder"), was published in 1997.An updated edition was published in 2020. It is one of the most well known works on the assassination of Swedish Prime Minister Olof Palme. It received the Golden Shovel, the Swedish prize för investigative journalism. The main focus on this first Palme book is the story about how the police, the prosecutors and the government botched the investigation during the first years. My conclusion is that the most important reason for that failure was that the authorities simply were afraid of the truth.

A large part of the book describes the real story behind the Ebbe Carlsson affair, a political scandal in the late eighties that was strongly related to the Palme murder.

In 2014 my first crime novel was published in Swedish. It is called Maktens mörka korridorer, ("The Dark Hallways of Power").

I have also written non-fiction books dealing with subjects as the September 11 terror attacks, organized crime, fraud, espionage and conspiracies. As yet none of my books are available in English.
