Gun and explosive violence

Khoshnood, Ardavan LU and Gerell, Manne (2019) p.19-32
Abstract
Gun-related violence in Sweden has increased dramatically since the 1990s, and while the entire country has been affected, the Skåne region and Malmö in particular stand out. Although many of the shootings are directed at buildings and vehicles, more than ten people are killed and injured in the city every year. Violence caused by explosives has also increased both in Malmö and in the country as a whole, and this could be a sign of a shifting trend in serious crime.
Abstract (Swedish)
Det skjutvapenrelaterade våldet i Sverige har ökat kraftigt sedan 1990-talet, och trots att hela Sverige är drabbat sticker Region Skåne och då främst Malmö ut. Även om en stor del av skottlossningarna riktas mot byggnader och fordon dör och skadas årligen ett tiotal personer i staden. Även explosionsvåldet har ökat både i landet och i Malmö och det kan vara ett tecken på ett trendbrott inom den grova brottsligheten.
