Abstract [sv]

This chapter gives an overview of criminal profiling (or offender profiling). Definitions, central concepts, and assumptions are discussed as well as different approaches to criminal profiling. Geographic profiling is described and the chapter also discusses the use of profiling in Sweden. Furthermore, the effectiveness of criminal profileing is discussed, that is; to what extent profiles facilitate the work of investigators in evaluting suspects and providing useful advice on investigation and interviewing.
