Note

Crime levels in Sweden lie around the Western European average, and are also on par with those of the US, but the structure of crime differs. Despite stable, and even decreasing, crime rates during the 21st century, reactions to crime and offenders have hardened. The number of prison inmates in Sweden is among the lowest in the world, and the sanctioning system is diversified, employing a range of different sanctioning options.
