Sammanfattning: The aim of this study was to analyze how media presents individuals who commit crimes, where we analyzed if the presentation of the criminal differs, depending on the sex of the perpetrator. The used theories to investigate our questions was framing theory and Judith Butlers gender theory. By using qualitative content analysis, our material from different newspapers could be analyzed and coded. This led us to three different themes; "the perpetrator in the private and public", "the perpetrator in context to other people" and "the good and evil perpetrator". When we combined the analysis of our themes, previous research and our theories we found that the media present perpetrators differently depending on the sex of the perpetrator. The male perpetrators were mostly presented as the dangerous perpetrator and a criminal on his own, while the female perpetrators and their crimes were minimized and described in relation to the other. This led us to the conclusion that the media's presentation produces and reproduces existing gender norms, which can affect the readers views and opinions.
