Abstract
In addition to Malmö having the most reported crimes in relation to its population, it is also one of the cities in the country with the highest percentage of gun-related violence. Our earlier studies show that people who commit serious crimes such as homicide or attempted homicide in Malmö are primarily single, have no psychiatric diagnosis and mainly use knives or other sharp weapons to commit their crimes, although guns do cause more fatalities. The victims are usually somewhat older than the offenders and there is often a relationship between them. In fatal knife attacks, the leading cause of death among victims is loss of blood. For victims who are attacked by guns, head injuries are the main cause of death.
Abstract (Swedish)
Förutom att Malmö har flest anmälda brott i relation till sin folkmängd, är det också en av de städer i landet med högst andel skjutvapenrelaterat våld. Våra tidigare studier visar att de som begår grova brott som mord eller dråp och försök till mord eller dråp i Malmö främst är ensamstående, har ingen psykiatrisk diagnos och använder sig främst av kniv eller annat vasst tillhygge vid sina dåd, även om skjutvapen orsakar fler döda. Offren är vanligtvis något äldre än gärningsmännen, och det finns ofta en relation mellan dem. Offer som avlider till följd av knivdåd har främst blodförlust som dödsorsak. Vad gäller de offer som attackeras med skjutvapen är det främst huvudskador som leder till döden.
