An effort has been made to unite the theoretical and legal disscussions with an approache that can be considered in real police work.

One important issue, when discussing infiltration, is the problem of avoiding unlawful entrapment. As a consequense of the non-existing legal institution the legal development are in fact conducted by controllfunktios such as ''justitieombudsmannen'' (JO) and ''justitiekanslern''(JK). A conclusion is made that the current system contains inherent conflicts both between different legal authorities and between different existing laws and principles. As to the ethical discussion it is concluded that in some situations the use of infiltration can be justified in valid ethical terms. The overall impression is that the use of infiltration needs to be legislated. (Less)
