Erik Carlsson receiving his Lifetime Achievement Award from Peter Bäckström. Originally he was supposed to receive this from Victor Müller already in 2010 but as Saab went under (again) it fell through. But better late than never.

Sad News – Erik Carlsson has died this morning

This has circulated in the emails today:

Dear all,

Sad news – Erik Carlsson died this morning in a London hospital. He fell in his home in Eaton Bray two and a half week ago, injured his back and punctured a lung never to recover. He was 86 years.

Regards

Gunnar Palm

This was also confirmed by Simo Lampinen when I called him.

I’m very sad to hear these news. Erik was the true Mr. Saab. He will be missed.
