I tried to sleep and get some relief from my troubles, but I cold sleep only a little bit.
I believe the thesis has an interesting introduction and some good dissertations about the data.
But if my psycological feeling do not changes I wouldn't be able to finish the thesis in time

The time spent on this PhD is already too much. I just kept going trying to figure out how to manage this issue and only now I've got the idea of writing this here.

I just know that he provided as final proof of the phenomena a graph that is totally invented!
Behind that graph there should be some further measurements and calculations, none ever did anything like that. And you can write down a small paper without engaging in details, but you can't write down a thesis on it!

Long story short, I will write my thesis based on my personal considerations, that comprend a quite large introduction, a review of similar papers, and dissertations about my measurements. I can add only one of the three papers already published (the first one!), except the last graph, that I would substitude with some qualitative considerations.

Other way I could include that graph, if someone ask me details about it, I can say that I wasn't the author of it (as he suggested me once long time ago)

I still don't know whether this is possible or not...

However, I am not that kind of person who fakes results and I alternate a kind of depression with intense writing and studies... That's what happen on a PhD like this

He knows that I can hardly discuss and defend a fake result like that ones he added on the two papers. For this reason he says to me that I do not necessary have to write down everything is reported on the papers.
He could add the first fake result on the first of the two papers as at that time I just trusted him but, after a discussion, I realized how he figure out that result...
Later on, he published a further paper, without asking me any authorization, I just realized I was author of a paper after it was already pubblished!
I will not mension the second paper at all on my thesis.

There is even more! He just published a third paper on my data, without let me know anything. And the name of the first outhor (which should be me!) is wrong! If someone ask me anything about that paper I will answer:
"I don't know anything about that and I am not the author of that paper as that is not my name!"

You can imagine the troubles he is giving me as I can hardly figure out a logically coherent test of about 100 pages...

I am nearly to the end of my PhD and I am probability writing this post when it is too late. The studies I did during these years were faked by my supervisor: he wrote two papers and he added a fake graph on each on of them.
Now that I am at the end of this PhD, he said to me that I can write my thesis not necessarily based on the paper results, but I could just write my personal results as they are. I am doing a job like this, however there is my name (as first outhor!) on that two papers.

The question is: even if I do not fake anything in my thesis, is there any possibility that the commission would ask and blame me some "strange" results resulting in that papers?

I confirm that the paper is wrong. I realized it when I started writing the introduction. In that case I had to collect all the information I read in articles and books and I found a large amount of evidences of its mistakes. I personally believe that the paper is not only wrong, but there are also false proof of the final results.
The best thing I could do would be writing a chapter results based on my personal considerations and trying to not contradict too much that paper, which is in some percentage contradictory by itself. It's not an easy job, but it could be safer and scientifically more correct than just writing down that paper on my thesis.
