The Swedish public broadcast network, Sveriges Television, cited unnamed sources claiming that the raid was prompted by political pressure from the United States, which the Swedish government denied. Sveriges Television claimed that the Swedish government was threatened by the World Trade Organization with trade sanctions unless action was taken against The Pirate Bay.

Soon after the police investigation of The Pirate Bay finished in 2008, the lead investigator, Jim Keyzer, according to Keyzer's since-deleted Facebook profile, left the police force briefly to work for MPAA member studio Warner Brothers.

So here we have evidence that the Swedish government or some members of the Swedish government previously 'doing the dirty' under pressure from the US government or some members of the US government.  We also have evidence of 'rogue elements' within the Swedish prosecutors office knowingly directing police actions outside the protections of Swedish Law.

This thing only gets better the more we learn.
