It might be a gross-out appendix to the Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, but unfortunately this story's true: a woman in Sweden has been arrested for allegedly using human skeleton parts to have sex with.

The 37-year-old was living in a Gothenburg apartment when authorities raided her home, discovering a human skull, a spine and dozens of miscellaneous bones.

The unnamed woman had also prepared a collection of CDs to explain and document the pleasures of necrophilia.

There is no evidence that the bones had been stolen from a morgue, although detectives found drills, body bags, and pictures from inside the morgue stored in a secret compartment.

The woman was first arrested in September, and a court found her sane to stand trial. "Violating the peace of the dead" is a crime that carries a two year sentence in Sweden.
