To find out what might Swedes had it sent out secret agents.
Two of them came to the Boston Celtics, but was revealed and stated then contact the man Mårten Jönsson.
He was arrested by the Swedes and sat in captivity, where he revealed his friend and
liaison Lars Persson, who also was arrested.
During transport from Mattmar, Swedes headquarters to Frösön, then they would row over Ytterån, threw himself overboard Marten and took his life.
