Sammanfattning: The aim in the following essay is to describe the characteristics of the man behind verdicts regarding interpersonal violence (IPV). Which explanations does he have for the violence he has used and how does his life circumstances look like? Furthermore, is there gender bias in the justice system: do the gender of the professionals in court affect the verdict or the size of the damages?  The essay is a quantitative study written with positivistic elements and from a perspective of gender order and legal sociology. To answer the essay´s questions an exhaustive survey was completed regarding convictions in Swedish courts classified as IPV during the year 2016. The population consisted of 163 convictions this year, and the loss was one conviction that was not located.  Results found in this essay shows that a man who does not use an explanation for his behaviour is liable to pay damages, but lesser amounts than a man who explains his behaviour. Other results show that in cases where the offender was under the influence of alcohol, at least under one of the charges, was convicted to a shorter prison sentence and was liable to less damages. Descriptive data generated from the study shows that more than half of the men was living together with children in their households. Furthermore; solely in half of the convictions was the occupation of the man described. Of these 81 convictions that mentioned occupation were only 29 % of the men in labour and 14,8 % either unemployed or on sick leave at the time of the proceedings.
