He used to lecture people on how to deal with sexual harassment and violence, and was seen as Swedish police's top expert on morality and ethics.

Now Goran Lindberg, the former head of Sweden's national police academy, is serving time in jail for rape and other sex crimes in what has been dubbed by judges as "sadistic sexual violence".

Lindberg has denied the charges and his lawyers say they will appeal the six-year sentence, but the story has shocked pretty much anyone who hears about it, as Stefanie Dekker reports.
