Ylva Anna Maria Lindh (19 June 1957 – 11 September 2003), was a Swedish lawyer and Social Democratic politician who was a Member of the Riksdag (member of parliament) for Södermanland County until her assassination during her third term in office. Four days before a referendum on replacing the Swedish krona with the euro as currency, Lindh was stabbed by Mijailo Mijailović on September 10, 2003, at the NK department store in central Stockholm; she died the next morning at Karolinska University Hospital. Anna Lindh had been seen as a likely candidate to succeed Göran Persson as Social Democratic party leader. Her greatest commitment was to international cooperation and solidarity, as well as to environmental issues. She worked on these issues throughout her career, serving as Environment Minister from 1994 to 1998, and then as Foreign Minister for the last five years of her life.
