Abstract
This thesis focuses mainly on four cases in which the penal for murder was discussed and a recently submitted bill in which harsher penalties for murder are proposed.

This thesis focuses mainly on four cases in which the penal for murder was discussed and a recently submitted bill in which harsher penalties for murder are proposed. I, thus, intend to examine the circumstances to which the greatest deal of importance is attached when deciding upon an appropriate sentence for murder and secondly, why the Government considers harsher penalties for murder to be required. The aim has also been to attempt to determine which of the three portrayed theories of criminal justice, the four cases as well as the bill are practiced in light of. Regarding the cases, it has not been possible to draw any firm conclusions since the Supreme Court does not explicitly refer to any of the theories, nor can these theories be perceived in the reasons given by the Supreme Court. The bill, however, indicates that mainly the deterrent theory and the retributive theory are taken into account and thus, constitute the main reasons as to why the Government finds it necessary to introduce harsher penalties. Nevertheless, the latter theory seems to be referred to in greater extension. (Less)
