The rusted safe was found on Sunday by a person who tipped off the GT/Expressen newspaper.

“I read about the safe in GT, and I drove by with the car and saw a white or grey safe lying in the bushes. I immediately thought that it could be the safe they’re searching for,” the anonymous finder told the paper.

In October last year, a safe was missing from the home of 69-year-old dairy farmer Torgny Antby and his 71-year-old wife Inger, who were brutally killed by two suspected thieves.

As the safe was never found, the court was forced to throw out "aggravated robbery" as a motive for the crime, explaining at the time that without the safe the evidence was lacking.

Police are currently comparing the find with reports of missing safes, and have not confirmed whether the safe is believed to be that missing from the farmers’ home.

“It could be anything from the Långared murder to a break-in,” said one of the police officer’s at the scene to the paper.

Two men from Poland, named in the Swedish media as Miroslaw Tabisz, 34, and Jacek Tabor, 40, were convicted in June for the murder, and were sentenced to life in Swedish prison. The men will be deported after serving their prison sentences.

Both men denied the crime and have appealed the court’s decision.

Sentenced to life in prison, but will then be deported after serving their sentences? How does that work again? I could understand if the article mentioned that they are eligible for parole, but it doesn't.

Dunno where you get that "4 year" date...

"Until 1991 few served more than 15 years, but since then the time spent in prison has increased and in 2007 the usual time was at least 21 years." This is a pretty well documented

Sounds better 21 years but still not Life in Prison as called here, With 21 yeards earning interest in their money they are for sure set up to go back. I doubt anybody looked where is the money is.

Why don't you just commit some crime yourselves and take your time in prison to get first hand experience instead of whingeing.
