( Carlsson)

Swedish Publisher. Secretary of Information for the Swedish Department for Justice 1974-1976. Chairman of the Swedish Canoe Association since 1964. He became known to the Swedish people in connection with “Ebbe Carlsson-affären” (the “Ebbe Carlsson Affair”), a huge political scandal that shook Sweden in the summer of 1988. Ebbe Carlsson, supported by the Swedish Minister for Justice, Anna-Greta Leijon, was investigating the murder of Prime Minister Olof Palme as a private person. The Minister for Justice subsequently had to resign as a result of this affair. But Ebbe Carlsson himself became a more public figure than ever, often performing on several occasions on TV, radio and in media. (bio by: Peter Robsahm)
