The firearm related violence is increasing [Swedish]
The debate about crime statistics and which crimes are increasing and not is often infected. The discussion benefits neither from understatements nor exaggerations, but should be kept factual. The truth is that yes, some crimes are decreasing and Sweden is very safe internationally. But there are also dark clouds, for example when it comes to firearm related violence and explosive violence - areas where Sweden has very big problems even in international comparisons, writes criminologist Ardavan Khoshnood.
