Right outside the Urban Deli is where Olof Palme the Swedish Prime Minister was murdered about 30 years ago. How come such a prominent persons killer has never been found?

Some have argued that this is a small, barely visible plaque that is easily missable (correct on both counts) and nothing special at all. They miss the point. The simplicity is exactly what the man it commemorates--Former Prime Minister Olof Palme would probably have wanted....More

There is nothing here except the plaque on the ground. But of course if you want to visit the place where Palme got shot this is the place.

neighborhood. It’s home to the main shopping street,
Drottninggatan, and to Stockholm icons like the
Sergels Torg glass obelisk, the famous Hay Market with
its Carl Milles sculptures, and the Hötorget
Skyscrapers, a sight on every other Stockholm
postcard. Norrmalm is also home to Sweden’s most
traditional department stores Nordiska Kompaniet and
