‘Haga Man' Niklas Lindgren, convicted of raping several women in Umeå over a seven year period, will not have his case heard by the Supreme Court.

The Court of Appeal today decided not to grant Lindgren leave to appeal to the higher court.

Lindgren has been sentenced to 14 years in prison for rape and two instances of attempted murder after a series of brutal attacks in the Haga district of Umeå.

Claiming that his intention was never to kill his victims, Lindgren appealed the original verdict.

But the court of appeal has concluded that Lindgren was indifferent as to whether the women died or not, a view contested by Lindgren's lawyer, Leif Silbersky.
