Sweden Erupts: Basshunter, Dewani, Assange And Wahab al-Abdaly Are The News Cycle

by | 14th, December 2010

BASSHUNTER, the former Big Brother star and keen fisherman, also known as Jonas Erik Altberg, is alleged to have sexually assaulted two women in Kirkcaldy’s Kitty nightclub, Fife, on December 10, 2010.

He has been released on bail. He’s flown back to his native Sweden. Basshunter’s management say the allegations are “untrue”.

Incredible, isn’t it? Sweden is yet again setting the news agenda. This is the fourth Sweden-featured scandal in a matter of days:

Shrien Dewani is alleged to have played a part in the murder of his new wife, Swedish national Anni Dewani.

Taimour Abdulwahab al-Abdaly blew himself up in Sweden, nailing himself to jihad’s mast.

Julian Assange, of Wikileaks (hosted in Sweden) is wanted in Sweden over an alleged rape.

Remember when Sweden was all about tennis players, Abba retrospectives and porn? Is the country carving out a new identity as a hotbed of intrigue?
