Photo of the week:
Miss Sweden 2004, Katarina Wigander taking part in Miss Universe 2004

The triumph Katarina Wigander as Miss Sweden 2004 was controversial because she was elected by Moore Magazine, a magazine for men. The pageant has caused an uproar by many former Miss Sweden-titleholders, disliking the fact that the pictures she made for the pageant was comparable with pornography. Her predecessor, Helena Stenbäck, refused to crown her. That was the beginning of the end; the pageant was bought and re-built in 2005 by Greece’s Panos Papadoupolous, a swimsuit producer.
