Lobster found in 'Gullmarsfjorden' high on the Swedish west coast (Skagerrak).

 

The picture is taken at about 30 meters depth in an area where Troll lobsters (Galathea strigosa) are common, but this one has very different claws and lacks the blue eyes and blue lines on the carapace.

 

Anyone know what it is?
