Swedish singer, songwriter and musician.

By 1975, Ted had become a big star in Sweden, with his boyish good looks he was prominently featured in teen magazines like Starlet, Mitt Livs Novell and Poster, his love life and teenage romances were even covered by the national dailies, he had his own fan club, all his albums had gone gold and had also sold well in the rest of Scandinavia, besides ABBA he was the Polar Music label's best-selling artist. By 1977 Ted was however faced with a dilemma common to many a child star and teen idol, both before and after him; as he grew up and became more mature - so did his audiences. In 1981, he dropped out of the music scene - at the age of 25.

On 22 June 1997, at the age of 41, he ended his life by jumping in front of a train.
