Abstract [en]

An apparent consistent finding, in Sweden and in the rest of the Western World, is that female criminality is increasing more than male criminality: if men still commit way more crimes, the gap between the sexes is narrowing.The aim of this thesis is to continue previous research, by studying female crime trends in Sweden. The data used comes from Swedish official crime statistics regarding women prosecuted for or suspected of a crime and covers a time period going from 2000 to 2020. The crimes of relevance in this thesis are the crimes of murder and manslaughter, assault, and gross assault. Finally, women are divided into various age groups to compare the evolution of each of them.The main findings of this study are that the number of women prosecuted for crimes against life and health seems to be overall decreasing, but this decrease is more pronounced for women aged below 21, and for the most serious crimes. On the other hand, the gap between suspected and prosecuted women is increasing, especially for women aged 21 or more. Finally, it seems that if at the beginning of the century women aged below 21 were the main female perpetrators of assault, this has changed, with older women now being more suspected and prosecuted for this crime.
