When I shaked Sture Bergwall´s hand (known as Thomas Quick – the serial killer), I was very nervous. Not that he was frightening or intimidating the contrary, he was very polite and welcoming. But only because I have been reading terrible things about him in the media over the past 20 years.

But it turned out that he was as nervous as I was. To meet someone on the other side of the jail where you’ve been locked up in the last decades is probably more scary for him then for me.
