Pictures From Sweden’s First Car Bomb Murder, 1926

The businessman Sixten Flyborg (1892–1926) was murdered by his associates on the night of March 12, 1926 in Stockholm, Sweden. The associates, Eric von Arbin and Alexander Krüger, attached 6 kg of dynamite to the luggage rack of a Buick taxi that Flyborg had ordered. They lit the fuse which burned for 90 seconds.

When the taxi reached Piper street, the bomb exploded, instantly killing Flyborg. His torso was later found 100 meters from the car. The chauffeur survived with minor injuries.

The motive was to collect Flyborg’s life insurance worth 100.000 kr. The associates were arrested and sentenced to life imprisonment.
