Abstract
The three Scandinavian anti-immigration parties Sweden Democrats, Danish People’s Party and the Norwegian Progress Party all have representation in their respective national assemblies.
A large number of theories are available explaining the success of this party family.

Earlier studies have overlooked the effect that crime and insecurity could have on the anti-immigration vote. In this study I can show that insecurity related to crime in fact influence the support for anti-immigration parties. This is being linked with the possibility that voters connect immigration and crime in combination with the anti-immigration parties’ strict policy on law and order. The study also finds support for the Ethnic Competition theory and the demand for a populist frame. Further, support is found for the more classic explanation of anti-immigration voting, namely factors such as sex, age and education.
I also argue that the Sweden Democrat’s low election result, relative to their Scandinavian counterparts, is a consequence of the party’s history and that they in time will have the same potential to success as their neighboring parties. (Less)
