How to Murder a Foreign Minister - The Assassination of Anna LindhNilsson, Tomas. How to Murder a Foreign Minister - The Assassination of Anna Lindh.

Tomas Nilsson Förlag, 2016. ISBN 9789163778933.

This book analyses the assassination of Anna Lindh, Sweden's Minister for Foreign Affairs in 2003, and draws the conclusion that it was not Mijailo Mijailovic who fatally stabbed her, but that it was a political assault. Witness statements and forensic reports and evidence are presented, and a picture of how the attack was perfomed - and who planned and executed it - is composed.
