On the morning of September 4, 2020, the police will be alerted to an address in central Trollhättan.
A personal assistant named Erik, who is in his 30s, has been found with severe stab wounds by two colleagues in an apartment belonging to a full-body paralyzed patient.
At the same time, the user’s wallet and mobile phone are missing.
Chopped to death with several stab wounds
Once in place, the police quickly establish that Erik is dead, and they quickly suspect that a crime has been committed.
– It really felt like it was a crime that was here, because there was so much that spoke for it already initially. The large amount of blood, says the forensic technician Johan Sörqvist in Thursday’s episode of “Swedish cases” and continues:
– There were splashes of blood. There was no other natural explanation, so to speak.
Later, a forensic doctor was able to establish that Erik, in addition to averting injuries, received several stab wounds to the neck.
– The autopsy showed that the cause of death was that carotid arteries and also the trachea were cut off, says the interrogator Anette Timm Preinfalk in the program.
Colleague on call is initially suspected
On site in the apartment at the time of the murder, which was committed during the night, were both the patient and another 55-year-old personal assistant who was on call and who was asleep when the body was discovered.
The colleague is initially suspected of the murder for the simple reason that he was in the apartment at the time of the murder and is arrested by the prosecutor Daniel Edsbagge.
During questioning, the man denies the accusations and states that he slept with earplugs and took a sleeping pill and therefore did not wake up.
Activity on the user’s bank account
During the investigation, the police suddenly discover how someone, during the night of the murder, transferred money from the user’s savings accounts to two different bank cards and that a withdrawal of SEK 15,000 was made at an ATM.
By requesting video material from the ATM’s surveillance camera, the police can see a masked person making the withdrawal.
It does not take long before staff at the assistance company identify the person as 43-year-olds Jennie Olsson – the patient’s carer and cousin.
Jennie Olsson and gambling addiction
The suspicions are immediately directed at Jennie, who turns out to have extensive gambling addiction.
– She plays a lot and makes her wins, but seems to lose them just as fast again. This has made her need money all the time. We are talking millions that were transferred to the accounts, says the interrogator in the program.
On September 6, the police raid an apartment in Trollhättan where they arrest Jennie on suspicion of murder.
Bloody find at the recycling center
At first you find nothing that can link Jennie to the actual murder, but soon you find a startling find in her mobile phone.
Jennie has downloaded information about the murder of 17-year-olds Wilma Andersson and how the police then worked to track mobile phones.
In addition, Jennie’s girlfriend tells that the 43-year-old, the day after the murder, threw objects at a recycling center. In a container at the center, the police find the bag that Jennie threw away – containing bloody shoes and clothes.
Jennie’s account of the murder
During interrogation, Jennie claims that two strangers forced her to steal money from the user in order to repay a gambling debt.
Once in place in the user’s apartment, problems have arisen and one of the people must then have killed the personal assistant, she states.
However, this report can be dismissed by the police because there were only traces of a person in the apartment and that the blood splatter does not agree with Jennie’s statement.
Sentenced to life imprisonment
In March 2021, Jennie was sentenced, against her refusal, in the district court to 18 years in prison for murder, aggravated theft, fraud and causing danger to another.
The prosecutor appealed the verdict to the Court of Appeal, which sharpened the sentence to life imprisonment.
The season premiere of “Svenska Fall” will be broadcast on Thursday 9 September at 21.00 on TV3 and Viaplay.
