Apparently its only in Swedish, atleast at this time, if someone wants to translate it, i will pay... although probably not enough to make it worth the time.

Hagglund is an asshat. He also makes himself out to be some form of a savior, when in reality, the Swedish gov't sat on their hands until the last possible second before guaranteeing loans. Not saying Spyker/VM is better or worse than Bard Eker/CvK, but had they moved a bit quicker, Koenigsegg would've been able to complete the deal and the brand would've suffered less damage.

True, but GM was also being very difficult too, according to many things i've heard.
Oh, no doubt, but it seems it was more Whitacre's haste to sell or close the "bad" brands, combined with a lack of knowledge and/or a disinterest in Saab, that led to GM's appearance of being difficult. Word is Lutz and especially Fritz Henderson (and Fritz's Saab driving wifey) were all for giving Saab a chance at life. Plus in the end, GM basically gave Saab away for $74mil + stock.
