Bomb scare in Sweden

Weird, just saw this story on TV. A man in Sweden has been saved by the police and the bomb squad after he showed up in a suburb of Stockholm with what he claimed was a bomb belt around his waist. Unlike a suicide bomber this guy claimed that kidnappers had put the bomb on him and told him it was remote controlled. He says he escaped after 3 days and then went around pleading for help. The footage showed the SWAT type team watching him from cover and then a bomb squad guy moved in, removed the belt and the guy ran for cover. The bomb didn't explode and the police are questioning him, but they seem to believe his story. It's like something from the movies.
