2012 (English)Book (Other academic)
Abstract [en]

In a joint Nordic project, criminal statistics from Denmark, Finland, Norway and Sweden were compiled under the auspices of the Nordic Committee on Criminal Statistics (NUK) and were published under the title Nordisk kriminalstatistik 1950-1980 in 1982.

In December of 1982, the first abbreviated English language version of this report was published.  For this 8th edition of the English version, the original data have been updated for the years up to and including 2010 and now cover 61 years of Nordic criminal justice statistics.

This edition has been furnished with an updated summary on crime and punishment in Denmark, Finland, Norway and Sweden. An Appendix is discussing the pitfalls of ad hoc chart reading.
