A man in Norrtäljebo conned his insurance company 41 times, according to DN on Wednesday. Between 1996 and 2003 he cheated with his sickness benefit, his parental allowance and occasional parental benefit, and "earned" over 364,000 kronor.

"He says he did it because he managed to get away with it once, realised it worked and after that it's easy to keep doing it if you think there's no problem with it", said Gunilla Eklund, Crime Investigator in Norrtälje.

The man has pleaded guilty and is expected to be charged with serious fraud.
