The undisputed Swedish king of crime, Leif GW Persson (77), has been seen on a number of programs for several years – Whether in documentaries or on morning television.
The criminology professor, who worked for Sweden’s National Police Agency for 30 years, has sold millions of books – translated into more than 30 languages - in his native Sweden, but is also a hit in this country, with several books topping the book lists. Best seller.
Nowadays, he can be seen on Swedish TV4, where he analyzes and talks weekly about the latest crime incidents.
There are probably many who think he can’t blame his personality for his success. Pearson can appear exceptionally mysterious and intimidating, which many people have questioned.
Now, however, it clears up the mystery of why it is that way.
He did so in an interview with Malou von Siver on the TV4 program “Malou möter”, produced by Swedish Women’s Journalwhere it turns out, among other things, that it is no coincidence that Pearson acts as he does.
– I think I’m a sweet, gentle character, behind my creepy exterior. He says I do this mostly to save time, and continues:
– If you look a little intimidating, you save time. Otherwise, people will stop you and talk forever.
Moreover, presenter Sever can reveal that the underworld was in no way tough or sinister when they worked together at the Swedish newspaper Aftonbladet in the 1980s.
– Despite the fact that you were a strong and experienced man, you were fair to those who were younger – like me, you say.
