"Luckily, organized crime has not come that far in Sweden yet, but we have much more violence than Italy and other European countries," says Torbjörn Hermansson, coordinator against organized crime in Södertälje.

P4 Södertälje was the first to announce that they will initiate a collaboration between Södertälje and Italy as they see similarities in organized crime.

Seeing similarities

"There are criteria for organised crime, which is why we see similarities in crime between us and Italy, but also the rest of Europe," says Torbjörn Hermansson.

The idea is that during the spring, experts from Italy will come and help the Södertälje police with the investigation and the problem.
