Bishop faces fine after Eurovision rage

The recent Eurovision song contest proved too much to handle for the Protestant bishop of Stockholm - annoyed by the loud radio of her neighbours she entered their apartment and turned it off, a Swedish daily reported on Saturday.

On May 21st, the neighbors of Caroline Krook, a top official with the Swedish Protestant church, were outside their flat and had turned up the volume on their radio to listen to the tunes from the Eurovision competition, according to Aftonbladet.

Krook knocked on their door asking them to lower the volume a bit, but receiving no answer, she quickly slipped inside – the door was not locked – and pulled the plug on the radio.

The neighbours came inside to see what had happened, catching the bishop in the stairwell, and who promptly remonstrated them and said she was the culprit.

“I screamed really loud but nobody responded, so I did something really stupid: I went inside and pulled the plug,” she told the paper.

Krook now risks a fine for breaking and entering after her not-so-forgiving neighbours filed a complaint with police.
