A real bullet, in the post...

Kurt Hellstrom, chief executive of Ericsson, has called in the Swedish police to investigate a death threat he received in the post - along with a bullet. Hellstrom has overseen a deep cutting redundancy programme and has received threats in the past. The 9mm bullet was accompanied by a note constructed from letters cut from magazines. It said: "Time has come, you will die soon."
