Bet they were surprised

That knock on the door must have given them a shock.

Though targeting a police organisation (SOCA), even if it's in another country, is always going to stir up a hornets nest. They should have stuck to defacing their school intranet pages and friends homepages.

Also, they did attack the PST (Politiets SikkerhetsTjeneste - The Police Security Services, an intelligence agency within the Police.) so the police were after them anyway.

Dragsholm Slot does not lie in Sweden, but in Denmark - to be more specific, in Hørve. AFAIK, Mr Assange has no connexion to the building....
