Thomas Quick (born Sture Ragnar Bergwall) is a convicted Swedish criminal who has previously confessed to more than 30 murders, although he has only eight convictions, five of which have been overturned. The credibility of Quick’s confessions have been widely debated in the Swedish media. Critics of these confessions, and the trials, claim that Quick never murdered anyone, but that he is a compulsive liar. In December 2008, Quick recanted his confessions, and denied taking part in any of the murders for which he was convicted.
