A Camden man is facing jail after a stunt ended in disaster when he ploughed his car into a tree - killing two friends.
Kaspar Norton, who had reportedly been drinking, lost control of his Volvo car as he drove at alleged speeds of up to 80mph down a country lane on the Swedish island of Munso.
His two friends Stuart Barnes, 21, from Britain, and Swede Jimi Nylund, 20, who had been clinging on to the luggage rail - allegedly in a daredevil stunt known as car-surfing - were thrown from the roof in the collision and killed instantly.
Norton, 21, was taken to hospital with two broken legs, fractured ribs and broken nose.

"The car was travelling at very high speeds before it hit the tree."
Mr Norton's Swedish mum was too distraught to speak yesterday as his English dad flew from London to be at his injured son's bedside.
Tributes to those who were killed were posted on Swedish websites.
One comment read: "Right now everything seems pointless. Jimi, I miss you. I cannot believe you are dead. You did not come to my party yesterday - if you had done you would still be alive."
The craze of car surfing originated in America and has spread with the growth of websites such as YouTube.
