Stockholm Syndrom origins

We all know the story... bank robbers take hostage and hostage later falls for their captures. But what you don't know is that the story a) sadly isn't true b)it happened in a bank in Stockholm which is now Acne's biggest studio store in Norrmalmstorg.

Bank robber Jan Erik Olsson was holed up in a vault with his hostages for 3 days. When negotiations started he asked for his friend, 3 million kroner, 2 guns, bullet proof vests and a fast car to be sent in ( presumably he meant for the car to be left outside!). Police rescued the hostages by drilling through to the vault, which is now the changing room!
