The level of recorded fatal violence has varied between 68 and 112 per year since 2002, when the Swedish National Council for Crime Prevention began to compile statistics, with no clear trend. During that period, the average level has been 92 cases per year.In the last two years, the number of reported cases of fatal violence has been higher (112 and 106 cases). There have been considerable variations in the number of cases, but it is too early to say whether the higher level is a break in the trend of consistent average seen since 2002.Fatal violence is defined in this report as murder, manslaughter and filicide, plus abuse resulting in death. Not included are deaths legally defined as self-defence.Reported cases are defined as crimes of fatal violence (resulting in death) reported when it can be concluded that fatal violence is highly probable that is the cause of death.
