Damage Control - New Version Given by Anna Lindh Killer
Comment: Mijailo Mijailovic who murdered former Swedish foreign minister Anna Lindh (Died September 11th 2003) has now changed his story. Original blaming voices, now blaming only drugs. So it only took 8 years under "care" to get him to change his story.
The man convicted of the 2003 murder of Swedish foreign minister Anna Lindh, Mijailo Mijailovic, has finally spoken out about the case after eight years in prison.
The 32-year-old Mijailovic admitted in an extensive interview with Expressen newspaper on Sunday that he had not planned the assassination but did it on impulse after seeing the foreign minister at the time outside the NK department store in Stockholm.
He said he then followed her around several stories of the shop on September 10th, 2003, before the fatal stabbing incident which rocked society and changed Swedish politics.
High on the hypnotic drug Flunitrazepam at the time, Mijailovic told how he tracked down Lindh and eventually caught up with her and stabbed her at a Filippa K concession.
"I just went up, took out the knife and it happened there. It happened so fast. I remember that the atmosphere was chaotic, very crowded, and someone yelled catch him. I remember that there was a lot of shouting," Mijailovic told the newspaper, recalling the incident.
Despite the attack happening in a crowded shop in broad daylight, Mijailovic managed to flee the scene, much to his surprise.
(Comment: This is the "modern", debased and debilitated "UN approved" Sweden, where the people no longer have the ability or will to help, protect or defend themselves.)
I went slowly at first, then when I left through the side entrance, the same one I took on the way in. Then I threw the knife in a trash can.....Then I started running again. I took a taxi at Dramaten Theatre," he said.
"I saw police cars, so it was a bit strange that they did not catch me in town.....Later I sobered up in the woods in Södertalje, where I threw away the clothes. I sat there in the woods and thought: This is my last taste of freedom.
Mijailovic expressed little sign of remorse during the trial and gave few clues as to his motives.
In the interview he denied that it was motivated by Lindhs statements over the NATO bombings of Serbia, stating that it had been a coincidence it was Lindh he saw, and that he had previously considered attacking Lars Leijonborg of the Liberal Party (Folkpartiet) a week before the Lindh murder.
I felt hatred of politicians, both Swedish and Serbian. I blamed all my own failures on politicians, he told Expressen.
In retrospect, I realise that it was weak to blame their own failures of politicians. Its not a politicians fault that things go wrong for people in life, he adds.
Later in the interview Mijailovic admitted that he had made up his defence line about hearing voices as a ploy to plead insanity and thereby escape a sentence in a normal prison.
Mijailovic accepts that he will most likely never be released and is prepared for his fate.
I cannot be forgiven for everything. I will go to hell, when the time comes, the 32-yer-old concluded.
I find it baffling that the above evidence was not explored further when the self-confessed killer of the former Foreign Minister Anna Lindh never claimed that he had never heard them before or since, especially when he attacked a fellow prisoner in Sundsvall while undergoing further treatment in September 2005.

Swedish psychiatry in the dock
Reform causing chaos in society - by design
The Anna Lindh murder trial has rekindled an already heated debate here about Swedens failing psychiatric care system.
Mijailo Mijailovic, who has confessed to stabbing the foreign minister, told the court doctors had turned him away when he sought psychiatric help.
He says he attacked Ms Lindh after hearing voices in his head urging him to do so.
A 1995 reform was meant to modernise and streamline Swedens psychiatric system, by reducing the number of closed psychiatric wards and integrating patients into society during their treatment.
But many patients, sometimes people suffering from severe mental illness, fell outside the new system and outside of care.
Critics have seized on Mr Mijailovics testimony about how he killed Anna Lindh as further evidence of the failures of the new system.
One of Swedens top defence lawyers, Leif Silbersky, is angry.
"It is a fantastic and ridiculous situation were in. Anna Lindh has to die, so that he [Mijailo Mijailovic] can get psychiatric treatment," he told BBC News Online outside Stockholm city court.
"There has to be a debate in Sweden about psychiatric care... and there will be a debate, believe me, until things change."
There have been other violent attacks here committed by people who arguably should have been under psychiatric care, but who for various reasons were not.
In the summer before Anna Lindhs death, a man drove his car at high speed down a pedestrian street in Stockholms old town, killing two people and injuring 15.
He too later said he had heard voices telling him to do it.
Another man found to be in need of psychiatric care attacked people outside a Stockholm underground station by hitting them on the head with an iron rod.
Then, on the same day Anna Lindh died, a patient from a psychiatric hospital who had been allowed out, stabbed a five-year-old girl to death at her nursery.
He said hed been inspired by the Anna Lindh murder.
A homeless man, Jouko Pekka Jokinen, who has lived rough in Stockholm for a decade, says the psychiatric reform has visibly resulted in more and more mentally ill people on the streets.
"All mental hospitals where they look after people are closing and throwing people out.
"They end up in an environment they dont know, and go off the rails," he says.
"What do you think happens? Nine out of 10 try to do something to draw attention to the fact that they need help."
The government here says it recognises the 1995 psychiatric reform has not worked satisfactorily.
Soon after the death of Anna Lindh it announced an inquiry into what needs to be done.
The critics have already condemned that move as too little, too late.
