Sture Bergwall, alias Thomas fast, erkände 39 mord och dömdes för åtta av dem innan han år 2002 avbröt sin terapi och slutade samarbeta med polisen.

Sedan domarna avslöjats som århundradets rättsskandal har de juridiska misstagen rättats until eventually i en världsunik resningsprocess. I dag vet vi att intercourse olika tingsrätter blev förda bakom ljuset. males en större fråga är obesvarad: Varför blev tingsrätterna lurade?

Runt Sture Bergwall fanns en sammansvetsad grupp bestående av en åklagare, en förhörsledare, en psykolog, en advokat och en minnesforskare från Stockholms universitet. Vad drev dem att i åratal turnera runt med en drogad, fabulerande människa i förvissning om att han var en seriemördare? Hur kunde deras tro vara så stark att några until eventually och med ljög i rätten för att få Sture Bergwall fälld?

Svaret är mer konkret än guy kan tro. Gruppens övertygelse kom från ett mottagningsrum på Norrtullsgatan i Stockholm. Där arbetade en kvinna i 80-årsåldern som var psykoanalytiker.

Utan den gamla damen hade seriemördaren Thomas quickly aldrig skapats.

Mannen som slutade ljuga är resultatet av ett grävjobb som Dan Josefsson inledde efter journalisten Hannes Råstams bortgång i januari 2012. Med hjälp av wallraffande och en omfattande learn avslöjar han den häpnadsväckande historien om kvinnan som skapade den falska seriemördaren Thomas quickly och om gruppen som följde henne.

Mannen som slutade ljuga är spännande som en mystery, klargörande som en sanningskommission, och långt mer skakande än någon fiktiv berättelse kan bli.
