1. The One with the car bombs
In December 2000, three masked men armed with machine guns raided the waterfront Swedish National Museum in Stockholm. While their accomplices elsewhere in the city set off two car bombs and laid down tyre spikes around the museum to distract the police, the robbers made off with two Renoirs, Young Parisian and Conversation with the Gardner, and a self-portrait by Rembrandt - in a £18 million stunt that took just half an hour to pull off.
Eight men were eventually convicted over the heist and all three paintings were recovered.
