Inside the Firm: How an international drug cartel plotted a ‘line to Australia’

Apr 16, 2023

Dismiss Save articles for later Got it Advertisement The inner workings of a Swedish kingpin’s crime empire have leaked onto the internet, revealing a plan to target Australia’s insatiable drug market to make them rich beyond measure. The unprecedented glimpse inside transnational drug crime and the AN0M network comes on the eve of a court case that could decide dozens of prosecutions in NSW. Police allege accused Swedish drug lord, Maximilian Rivkin, boasted about his links to Australia with fellow members of The Firm cartel. Credit: Swedish Police Authority “I have a line to Australia,” Sweden’s Maximilian Rivkin allegedly wrote in an encrypted chat in mid-2020. “I am now with the biggest people in the world.” Earlier this year Rivkin was accused, alongside multiple Australians, of being one of the driving forces behind the spread of the encrypted app of choice for serious criminals - the AN0M network. Loading A US indictment, released by a California court, alleges AN0M’s purpose was to facilitate and protect the global drug trade. But it was all a trojan horse designed by the FBI and monitored by agencies including the Australian Federal Police. At about the time Rivkin and the Australians were accused in the US court, Swedish police files were dumped online containing thousands of pages of AN0M chats. Advertisement The files, verified by The Herald, allege Rivkin was one of four directors of a Swedish amphetamine cartel called the Firm. The documents also suggest Rivkin intended to use his connections to expand the Firm’s territory to take advantage of Australia’s sky-high drug prices.

Credit: Swedish Police Authority The Firm “Through conversations on the encrypted platform AN0M, it appears that people in the report form the core of a group that, for a long time, conducted extensive drug crime,” one of the Swedish translated police files begins. The precise origin of the Firm is not made out in the court files but, in just a few months, it allegedly produced more than half a tonne of amphetamine. To accomplish their goal, the court documents allege, the Firm transformed a cosy Swedish home into an industrial lab and began shipping drugs around Europe from July 2020. Pictures shared on AN0M appear to show trays upon trays of amphetamines drying in the lab, drugs in car boots and maps used by drug couriers. “(The Firm’s leaders) organised extensive amphetamine trafficking in Sweden and also the rest of the world,” the translated documents read. Staying off the grid From the beginning, in mid-2020, the Firm was highly secretive. The house chosen as a drug lab was small and unremarkable, in the lakeside village of Olshammar more than three hours from the capital Stockholm. A home allegedly converted to an industrial amphetamine lab in the tiny Swedish village of Olshammer.

Before any drugs left Olshammar, according to one series of messages, Rivkin organised for 10 phones to be sent to the Firm in July 2020. He maintained his enthusiasm for AN0M until the final kilo left the lab in December 2020, police allege. That month a WhatsApp user called “Anom Goteborg” sent a selfie from his dimly lit office.

Behind him is a giant AN0M logo, illuminated on the wall with the words “enforce your right to privacy” below. Another image of a Swedish licence, sent in the chat, suggests Anom Gothenburg was Rivkin. “Hold AN0M tight, it will be the next big thing,” Rivkin told his contact.

But by then the Firm had communicated endlessly on the platform. “Seneca please take nice pictures with anom this new phone so I can see the bricks and nice presentation,” Rivkin allegedly wrote to the head cook in July 2020. Seneca replied with an image of vacuum sealed white bricks. The drug lab as pictured by police during the raid in Olshammar. Credit: Swedish Police Authority
