Until today we do not know which weapon killed Olof Palme. What is certain is that of all the registered magnum revolvers that were in Stockholm in 1986, one is missing. This weapon has never been examined and may be the revolver that fired the deadly bullet.
The search for this weapon is part of our documentary. It is a Smith & Wesson .357 Magnum, Model 27, fitted with a 6-inch barrel. The serial number is on the bottom of the stock. Most likely, the serial number reads N694274.
The police have called on the public several times to provide information about this revolver. However, it is very likely that the wrong serial number was mentioned. Each time it was reported that the serial number ended in 61575.
According to the owner’s gun license obtained in 1980, this was the number of another gun he owned. In 1995, the serial numbers were suddenly swapped by a police employee without explanation. The Palme investigators only discovered this years later, but nevertheless continued to search for a revolver with 61575 as its serial number.
The gun owner allegedly sold the Smith & Wesson to an unknown man in 1992. Whether this is true is highly doubtful. But nothing can be ruled out. And the gun has to be somewhere.
