Yet another twist in Ferrari crash case
By Susan Abram, Staff Writer

Sheriff's investigators now say that a mysterious German named Dietrich never existed, but an American named Trevor has materialized, along with two intriguing figures who conned deputies at the crash site while claiming to be homeland security officials.


Eriksson was convicted of fraud and counterfeiting in Sweden in 1993 and 1994, and has been linked to a group known as the Uppsala Mafia, according to sheriff's deputies.

I know someone who used to work for him. Apparently he's a grade A *rsehole.

Um, and in exactly what, er, business did this person work for him? The article says he's not, well, exactly an above-board type. :twisted:

Anyone called Eriksson cannot be considered a playboy...

...unless he's called Sven-Göran Eriksson...

Hmmm. Here it is again FR.

The man in the car must have been a Social Democrat.

:twisted: (they are the only Swedes with enough funds to buy a car like that)!

The words "Swedish" and "playboy" sound odd in the same sentence.

QUOTE (* Max *)
The Uppsala Mafia huh? Known for interrogations involving a hex key and surstromming i bet.

Remember the Norwegians that got kicked out of a Swedish resort for "threatening use of herring"?
