An illiterate did this
I biked through some of the rural parts of Haninge yesterday, on what must have been the first day of Summer. If you ride right through the old village of Stadsberga, the road turns into a gravel path and if you continue over a little hill and down on the other side, you will be at Beteby, and that's where you can find this runestone of sorts. It has been suggested that an illiterate person, possibly called Björn,living at the farm here a few eons ago had the runestone made. The runes doesn't really say anything understandable. But it does have the familiar snake and also a cross. Maybe he, and I am pretty sure it was an old Viking, just wanted to have a runestone at his home to feel more important.
