Abstract
Landskrona appears in many contexts as a city with constant social problems and violent crime. These are mainly linked to the central areas.

My method includes a study of Landskrona in which I use previous research of the city. The information I received about the city was used to match with the theories concerning urban environment and people's social situations. An interview with the police in Landskrona also contributed to my outcome on the problem of violence in the city.
My conclusion is that both theories have many aspects that may be consistent with Landskrona. However, my results cannot show exactly what could explain the problems of violence, but instead they can give a pattern image of the various factors that may have an impact on the violence in the city.
