Jan Stocklassa, born 1965, is a former Swedish diplomat and businessman.

He served as the Swedish commercial counsellor for the Swedish Trade Council, the commercial section of the embassy, in Prague, Czech Republic from 1997 to 2003.[1]

He is the author of the novel Gripen av Prag, a fictionalized account based on Stocklassa's experiences when it emerged that a Czech supersonic jetfighter deal involving Saab and British Aerospace had shown signs of corruption.[2]

He has since served at a senior level on the board of Boss Media, a Swedish-based supplier of online gambling software infrastructure,[3] and previously as head of the international division of software company Svenska Spel.[4]

In 2018 his book Stieg Larssons arkiv, translated in English "The Man Who Played with Fire: Stieg Larsson's Lost Files and the Hunt for an Assassin"[5] in which Stocklassa investigates the assassination of Olof Palme, was published. The theories presented in the book are based on crime writer Stieg Larsson's research into the Swedish far right and its possible connections to the assassination.[6]
