This might just be the cutest job application ever...

This might just be the cutest job application ever...

Three young children from Sweden have enchanted the Internet by sending in a letter to their local police station - applying for positions as 'spies'.

Police in Haringe, south of Stockholm, shared the letter on social media (after getting permission from the childrens' parents, of course!) and by noon the post had garnered more than 17,000 likes and 1,200 shares. 

The letter, hand-written and decorated with tiny love hearts, is utterly adorable. It begins "Hi Police. My friends and I are wondering if we can help with any crimes. We are nine and seven years old. My name is Stella and my little brother is called Malte and my friend is called Moa-Li."

The letter continues, listing the childrens' credentials and interests:

"We like to play football and draw, but best of all is spying."

There was one major caveat to the application - "we don't want to be involved in any too dangerous crimes."

Police Inspector Par Lundqvist revealed that the note is now proudly displayed on the wall at the station: 

"[The letter] was of the kind that gets you through - happy, and it has probably been read by everyone at the station with a smile on his face. It is, of course, pinned to a place of honour."

"The children were just as happy that we got back to them as we were to get their letter. We have promised to follow up in some way, whether they can come to us or we got to them," Lundqvist added, according to the Aftonbladet tabloid. Asked whether receiving fan mail was a common occurrence, he explained that 'it happens that we get thanks and fan mail but it is not so common. And usually if we get thank you letters, they are adults. So we were very happy about this."
