A journalist from the Swedish newspaper Sydsvenskan tries to buy a hand grenade in Malmö, to see how difficult it is to get hold of such weapons in the city.
It proved to be very easy.
It only took him 10 minutes to find someone who was willing to sell him a hand grenade. The price was SEK 1,200 ($140) and it would be delivered the same day.
But after revealing that he was a journalist who was looking for an interview in addition to the grenade, the seller panicked and refused to make a deal anyway.
However, if it's not very urgent to blow up something or someone, one can also buy grenades online, then it takes about a week to get the grenades safely home in the mail, writes the newspaper.
In fact it lays out in detail how to acquire weapons via the internet, like the Munich terrorist did. Next would probably be to publish a make-your-own-bomb article.
Since 2014, at least 26 hand grenades have exploded in Skåne, many of them in Malmö. Hand grenades have also been found outdoors or hidden in cellars or in homes.
Hand grenades have become an increasing problem in the Swedish city. Most of them come from the former Yugoslavia.
- It's pure luck that not many more have been injured, given the explosive power contained in a hand grenade, says Annette Bergstrand, an analyst at the Malmö police.
But despite the journalist's minimal effort to find someone willing to sell him a hand grenade, the police are completely clueless about who's selling them. They are too busy chasing around from one incident to another, and probably do not have much resources left to investigate it, in the not so peaceful multicultural southern Swedish city.
