In 1980, 11-year-old Johan Asplund left his home in Sweden for the short walk to school and was never seen again. Thirteen years later, during a therapy session at the Säter clinic in northern Sweden, a patient named Thomas Quick told his therapist that he had kidnapped, raped and murdered Johan. From then on Thomas Quick confessed to one murder after another, claiming to have killed 39 men, women and children. Sweden had a monster, a sadistic, deranged killer. But in 2001, he suddenly stopped talking to the police and reverted to his real name of Sture Bergwall. Without further notice he declared to the press that his alter ego Thomas Quick was dead.
Don’t forget to also check out another documentary screening with Guardian Live: The Confessions of Thomas Quick, which will be screened on 6th August.
