She was worldwide chairwoman of UNICEF in 1990–91.
Assassination of Olof Palme
Olof Palme was shot and killed in central Stockholm on 28 February 1986 while walking home with his wife after a late night movie - without bodyguards. Lisbet Palme was also injured in the shooting by a shot that grazed her back.
Two years after the event, Christer Pettersson, a small-time criminal and drug addict, was arrested, identified by Mrs Palme. He was tried and convicted for Palme's murder. Pettersson's conviction was later overturned on appeal. As a result, the crime remains unsolved and a number of alternative theories as to who carried out the murder have since been proposed.
