The Knutby murder refers to a murder and attempted murder in the village of Knutby east of Uppsala in Sweden, on January 10, 2004. Around 04:40 in the morning, the 30-year-old it-entrepreneur Daniel Linde was shot in the head and chest and seriously wounded. Two hours later it was discovered that his employee and neighbor Alexandra Fossmo had also been shot. She was found dead in her bed. The murdered woman was married to Helge Fossmo, a pastor in a local pentecostal church. Her husband had left with Daniel Linde in the ambulance to the hospital.
The next day 26-year-old Sara Svensson confessed to both shootings. She had worked as a nanny in the pastor's family. Two weeks later, the pastor was also arrested, together with Daniel Linde's wife. Wiretapping had revealed to the police that they were lovers. They were both suspected of instigating the murder and murder attempt, but Linde's wife was released after two weeks and never charged.
