The guy did it and the judge can neither convict (because he was and is mentally ill) or section (because the guy has been acquitted).
Surely the state equivalent of the NHS (rather than the judge) can section the fella due to these "severe psychological disorder".
"Hhis wife will not now be entitled to any form of compensation." seems harsh. None at all? Hmmm.
peeps being found not guilty but being subsequently sectioned (for periods longer than the potential sentence for the crime in question) happens all the time. The thing to note is that you don't get sectioned for any particular length of time, it's moonitored as time goes by. You could be out sooner than the potential release date for the crime you were being charged with (had you been jailed) or you could die in care, long after the date at which you'd have been released from the theoretical jailing.
All seems very logical. Surely Sweden isn't that different from the UK?
Don't know about the compensation for the victim, but there must be something.
he won't be locked up anywhere until he stabs a judge or politician
so his "severe psychological disorder" isn't severe enough to convict him, or severe enough to section him. Hmmm.

should have read the article first.
