This paper is based on my recent assignment as a participant on an independent investigation commission, whose three members – a political scientist, a law scholar, and a management scholar (me) – were given the task of scrutinizing the activities of Gothenburg City Council, City Government, city administration, and municipal companies, in light of the 2010 "corruption scandal" in the city. The work of the commission, its results and their reception form a basis for the discussion of complexity of recent transparency requirements.
