"”It said bang, then came a palm flying”"
"the 39-year-old Helena Lundgren was near to burst to death, but was saved by the love of her dog, Crumb."
"When she saw a bombliknande items outside of a restaurant was first thought to remove the dog. "
"– Had not a Crumb of been with so I had maybe taken it up to see what it was. Then, it had gone bad, " says Helena Lundgren. "
"the Night of the 27 april was blown up a bomb at a restaurant on Drottninggatan in Malmö. The explosion was so strong that it was heard several kilometres away. "
"For the 39-year-old Helena Lundgren was the explosion of a near-death experience. She had worked in a shop on Drottninggatan, and would go home with her dog, Crumb. "
"When Helena approached the current restaurant noticed she that something was different. "
"– It smelled of gunpowder. Like when you were little and had a knallpulverpistol, " she says. "
"Found the object with the long fuse"
"a few meters distance saw Helena to the reputation of the outside of the restaurant. Her first thought was that maybe it was on fire. She knocked on a door at the kitchen entrance, but when no one opened, she went to the main entrance. There lay an object. "
"– My first thought was that they have forgotten to bring in their decorations. They usually have a type of torches outside. "
"When Helena looked closer at the object, she saw that it smoldered in it. And that something – that looked like a long fuse was attached to the top. "
" I don ”think I'll take a picture of it?” or ”Should I call the police?”. I decided to call the police and begins to walk away with the Crumb. "
"Saw the palm come flying"
"Because the outside looks long out Helena quietly and hiding behind a car a few meters from the restaurant. She should just switch 112 when the bomb goes off. Helena and Crumb thrown to the ground by the blast. "
" said pang, then came the shockwave and suddenly I see a palm tree come flying. "
"Directly after the explosion settles Helena over her dog to protect her. She knows that Crumb is gun-shy and is worried that it may pop again. "

"After a moment, she sees that it is bad with the dog. Crumb gasping for air and the mucous membrane is grayish. She has had a life-threatening shock."
"Helena alarm 112 but the operator hesitate to send a patrol to Drottninggatan. He / she shall have received several calls on another nearby address. "
"Helena is frustrated. She has stood right next to the bomb. "
"in the end, she sees a police car in the distance and wave to it. When the police arrive, they want to interrogate her but then she is only focused on saving his dog. "
"" I have calming medicine for dogs left in my car since the new year. So I want to get there quickly."
"the Police let her go to the car – if she promises to come back. It saves probably the life of the Crumb. When Helena gave her the sedative medicine is releasing the worst of the shock. "
"the Damage to the restaurant was extensive. In addition, got the car, Helena took shelter behind, the page key and all the boxes smashed. "
"the Police: ”Pure luck that she survived”"

"Investigators Lennart Andersson believes that Helena had guarded by angels."
"– It is pure luck that she survived. With the yield it is doubtful if she had survived if she had been closer. There had been severe damage, " says Lennart Andersson. "
"He is investigating both holes on Drottninggatan, and the two nuclear explosions generated which occurred at the Nobeltorget in april. He explains that the major problem of the investigations is the absence of motive when målsägandena or witnesses not given a lot of clues. It makes him frustrated. "
"– We can't have a society where people are not telling us and that people go around and blow up. It's bizarre, " says Lennart Andersson."
"Today – a week after the explosion – feeling both Helena and the Crumb is still bad. Crumb has pain in his left side and the front. She also has become afraid to walk on the street outside of my job and reigns strongly on the sound. "
"Helena has received tinnitus. "
"– It sounds like the fans at the Finnlandsfärjan. And sometimes, a strong beeping sound. I hope it goes over. "
"”Can not talk on the phone”"
"you Also hear strong sounds extra clear. Helena describes it as if the ears do not filter the sounds anymore. "
" I can't talk on the phone or listen to music. It will be too high. And seagulls sound like dinosaurs."
"She is still grateful that it was not worse. "
"– I Had not had with me the Crumb I had, perhaps, taken up the object to look at it or stayed to take a picture before I called the police. Then I had died. "
"”a Matter of time before someone dies '"
"Malmö has been hit hard by the blasts to the past few years. In 2018, occurred 45 explosions and the Drottninggatan shopping street, was the seventeenth. "
"Helena feel frustrated over crime in Malmö and was almost immune to the bangs – she herself suffered. She hopes changes in the law that gives the police more opportunities. "
" the Police must have more powers. They often know who is behind but can't take them. Unfortunately, it is probably a matter of time before someone dies. "
