However, when Swedish newspaper Göteborgs-Posten started digging on Bildt’s background, they revealed Bildt’s actual surname was Tolling (which is a little less deliberately Swedish-sounding) and that he hasn’t lived in Sweden since 1994. They also learned that Swedish national security agencies have no idea who he is.
“We have no spokesman by that name,” said Marie Pisäter, a spokeswoman for the Swedish Defense Ministry, who also confirmed that he didn’t work in Sweden’s foreign office. “We do not know who he is.”
In addition to his lack of credentials, Bildt was also convicted of assaulting a police officer in the U.S. in 1994, for which he served one year in jail. The altercation with the police officer happened while Bildt was intoxicated, according to court documents filed in Arlington, Virginia.
