For two decades, Sture Bergwall considered to be Sweden”s real-life Hannibal Lecter spent his days in a psychiatric ward after being charged for eight murders and confessing to over thirty. Several of the murders involved child rape. Disturbingly, he also ate many of his victims.

So how is it possible that this man was set free by the Swedish prison system in 2014? As it turns out, Bergwall never actually committed any of these murders. He was lying the whole time. But why?

Sture Bergwall — known for a time as Thomas Quick — was arrested in 1991 for armed robbery, and after being charged, was confined to the Sater psychiatric ward.

A long-time drug addict and social outcast, Bergwall concocted a scheme to stay in the system. Using the penitentiary library, he researched unsolved murder cases in the region and detailed to therapists and police how he had committed the crimes, no matter how heinous.

Bergwall”s infamy grew with every “confession.” Out of the over 30 confessions he made, he was charged for 8 of them, despite misremembering crucial details in some of the cases, such as the victim”s hair color and the murder weapon.

After receiving hospital benefits for two decades, one doctor began reducing Bergwall”s medication, and Sweden”s most infamous killer recovered his mind. In 2009, Bergwall began the appeal process. By 2014, he was declared not guilty in all cases.

Now in an outpatient center at the clinic, Sture Bergwall, 64, says he will write about his experiences with the Swedish penitentiary system. Sweden”s government is investigating how such an egregious mistake got so out of hand.

Either Bergwall was extremely afraid of the outside world, or Swedish mental hospitals are insanely luxurious. It”s amazing how a combination of lies and media hype can create a monster that never existed. Much like Hannibal Lecter, it seems that Sweden”s most infamous killer turned out to be a work of fiction after all.
