It was in 1984 that a Mongolian silver-crown was stolen from the Ethnographic Museum in Stockholm. It was retrieved and put into the police posession sometime in the 1980´s. Since then it has been stored in a bag in the National Criminal Investigation Department at Kungsholmen in Stockholm.
The bag has been stored in an office which was used by two detectives before Mr Åhlén.
- To be serious it looked rather shabby. I saw it as trash, Mr Åhlén says to Dagens Nyheter about his discovery of the bag.
The crown is now brought back to the Ethnographic Museum. This is ´where it belongs´ according to Dagens Nyheter.
In my opinion, its real home should be in Mongolia.
