Haha, reading it I directly understood that it was a hoax.
In Swedish media they never really write a victim's name like that out of respect for the person and the family, especially when it's as embarrassing like this.
And "Ståfräs" which was the name of the neighbor is swedish slang for "erection".
His body was found by a neighbour, who said Hasse was so swollen he initially mistook him for a whale carcass.
Neighbour Bertil Ståhfrääs said he called over to his neighbour to ask what he was doing: "At first [I thought he was lying there by] of choice, so I called 'Hasse' to ask what the hell he was doing.
"I walked up to the body and then I recognised his tattoo on his neck.
Sequence of events makes no sense.
He called over to him by name, but then mistook him for a whale carcass, but then knew it was him only by recognizing a tattoo? Even though he called to him by name? And how many wales wash up on farms?
