Meet Björn Jansson

Björn Jansson

This is Björn Jansson. A retired police officer. He was in the force for 43 years. During his long career he had worked all over the police force. Everything from street work as a constable, and as a traffic police, to a job as an investigating detective.Towards the of his career, Björn worked at a police museum in Stockholm, and that's how he came to be at the car event at Torvalla today with the old Porsche police car . Now after retirement he spends as much as five months of the year up north, enjoying the nature while fishing for salmon and trout. He doesn't hunt but sometimes assists his hunting friends. This is my 47th photo for the 100 Strangers project. You can see the rest of my strangers in my Set.

Wise man, goes north.

If you did go north for a hunt, what would you hunt? I am thinking reindeer, but maybe that it Finland…

I always think that I would be more supportive of hunting if the reindeer, moose and bears were armed. ;)

There are plenty of reindeers in Sweden but the owners might not appreciate if you go hunting them... Incidentally, they're pretty dumb (not the owners, the reindeers;) so hunting them wouldn't be much of a challenge.

Oops, I typed reindeer but obviously meant Roe Deer. Nice that you saved me Per!
