A new study from The Swedish National Council for Crime Prevention, Brå, shows that the proportion of the population registered as suspected offenders has declined over the period 2007–2018 among persons of both native and non-native background.
After a long period of decline in gun homicides, this type of homicide started to increase in Sweden from 2005 and has since continued to rise. At the same time, rates of homicide by other means have declined. In many other countries in Europe, there has been a decline in both gun homicide and homicide by other means. These results are presented in a new report from the Swedish National Council for Crime Prevention (Brå), which compares gun homicide across Europe since the turn of the millennium.
