Homicide in Finland
Trends and Patterns in Historical and Comparative Perspective
Finland has an exceptionally high homicide rate compared to other Scandinavian (and Western European) countries. Finland's peculiar position has remained unchanged throughout the 20th century. In May 2000, the National Research Institute of Legal Policy organized a small international seminar on this subject. The present publication includes most of the papers from this seminar. More extensive Finnish versions of some of the papers can be found in the Research Reports series of the institute.
