The head of Carl Bildt was removed from a photograph on Lundin Petroleum's website after the Swedish foreign minister had left the board of directors. But his body remains and is now topped by the head of board member Ashley Heppenstall, Expressen reports.

In the first photo Heppenstall is standing on a stairway beside Bildt. But thanks to some graphic trickery Heppenstall's head now rests on Bildt's shoulders, while his body is nowhere to be seen.

"He hasn't seen the photo and is refusing to comment on it," Bildt's press secretary Christian Carlsson told The Local.

Carl Bildt left all company boards of which he was a member upon being appointed foreign minister in September 2006.
