WORLD BEAT: ABBA Star Has Stalker




STOCKHOLM, Sweden -- The Greta Garbo of Swedish pop music, ABBA star Agnetha Faltskog, has complained to police sheis being stalked by an obsessive admirer, a district prosecutor said Tuesday.


A 34-year-old man was briefly detained and then released under suspicion of molesting the pop singer, prosecutor Solveig Sorlien said.


Swedish tabloid newspapers said the man had become smitten by the blonde star when he was eight years old and had left his native Netherlands to buy a house near where Faltskog lived at Ekero near Stockholm.


The man is still under investigation, Sorlien said.


Faltskog, who will be 50 Wednesday, is divorced from ABBA star Bjorn Ulvaeus. She lives reclusively, practicing yoga and taking long walks.
