Abstract [en]

Criminal profiling is a popular method in the scientific field as well as other sectors. It is also highly used by the law enforcement in different criminal investigations. Despite such popularity, the criminological literature has been discussing the validity, or in reality, the lack of validity, of criminal profiling. Through a systematic literature review, the current study has tried to evaluate the validity of criminal profiling. Several databases were searched for peer reviewed articles focusing on the question at issue. A total of 15 articles were identified to fulfil the objectives of the study and was thus included. The overall results clearly show that there is a lack of empirical evidence on the validity of criminal profiling. The studies furthermore discuss the need for more studies in this field, not least because criminal profiling is still highly used even though it lacks a strong empirical support. Further studies are also needed in order to validate the concept of criminal profiling in relation to new crime areas like cybercrime.
