”Vi löser aldrig några brott” : en studie om gärningsmannaprofilering i Sverige
Sammanfattning: The purpose of this study is to examine how offender profiling is being used in Sweden and how investigators working at different police departments perceive it as a method. To get ahold of empirical data I conducted a total of four interviews. To fulfill my purpose I first had to describe the offender profiling in Sweden with help of the interview with a representative for Gärningsmannaprofilgruppen, which is Sweden’s only profiling group. The other three interviews were with three investigators. The questions that I asked in order to achieve my purpose were about discovering which norms the investigators have about profiling and why they are that way. The theory that I used to analyze the results that I got was one of Bourdieu, more specifically his concepts of field, habitus and capital in relation to practice. My results show that the profiling is not used to great extent in Sweden and the norm is to almost exclusively use it as a last resort. Results also show that profilers and investigators use more or less the same techniques and therefore are competitive with each other.
