Johan Alfred Andersson Ander was the last and only person to be sent to the guillotine in Sweden.

Saddled with debts, Ander decided to rob an exchange agency and in doing so he battered Victoria Hellsten until she died of her injuries.

All he got for spoils was 6,000 Swedish crowns and he didn’t even have long to spend that.

He was arrested and beheaded in 1910, aged 37.
