Rising Crime Is a Threat to Swedish Businesses, Group Warns

Rising Swedish crime is a mounting threat for businesses in the Nordic nation, with almost 6 out of 10 saying they’ve been subject to crime in the past two years, the head of the country’s leading business group said.

A series of shootings and bombings have caused an unprecedented outcry and put law and order at the top of political agenda. But gaining less media and law enforcement attention is a rise in crime affecting businesses, according to Jan-Olof Jacke, chief executive officer of the Confederation of Swedish Enterprise.
