Swedish prosecutors say they believe they know who killed former Swedish prime minister Olof Palme in 1986, but say the suspect is dead.

They identified the suspect as Stig Engstrom, also known as “Skandia Man”, who killed himself in 2000.

As a result they are closing the investigation into Palme’s death, Chief Prosecutor Krister Petersson said.

Palme was shot in the back as he walked home from the cinema with his wife Lisbet in Stockholm.
