Please note Use of services is subject to the terms and conditions in our disclaimer.

Geocache Description:

Not far from here the Swedish prime minister Olof Palme was killed on the 28th of February 1986 after leaving a movie theatre and walking along Sveavägen with his wife. Several witnesses saw the murderer run east down the street that was then called Tunnelgatan (now Olof Palmes gata).
The murder is still not solved and the police never recovered the murder weapon. Search the escape route of the assassin and maybe you can find it.

GPS reception is not very good at the hiding place, so please note that the coordinates lead to a place 30 meters west of the cache. If you think you need even more help you should watch (and listen to) this really cool spoiler video clip provided by Kobdalis.
