Thomas Quick: the Swedish serial killer who never was

Forget about Stig Larsson, this is a real Skandinavian crime thriller. Thomas Quick was Sweden’s most notorious serial killer, having confessed to more than 30 murders. Until, well until a documentary filmer took a closer look and found that no evidence linked Quick to any of those murders. Quick had simply fooled the police and judges. But why? Read the piece, and you’ll know. Great read.
