“Han är för vass, intellektuellt sett, för sitt eget bästa” : En kvalitativ gestaltningsanalys om hur fallet med “Bunkerläkaren" gestaltades i Kvällsposten och Kristianstadsbladet

Detta är en Kandidat-uppsats från Linnéuniversitetet/Institutionen för medier och journalistik (MJ)

Sammanfattning: On September 12, 2015, a 37-year-old doctor named Martin Trenneborg kidnapped a woman from Stockholm named Isabel Eriksson. He locked her in a bunker on his yard in Östra Göringe kommun. The woman was reported missing and six days after the kidnapping, Martin Trenneborg and Isabel Eriksson returned to Stockholm to tell the police that she was ok. Later that day she managed to tell the police that she was kidnapped. Martin Trenneborg was later sentenced to eight years in prison.  The aim of this study is to examine how the case is framed in two Swedish newspapers and examine the differences between tabloids and broadsheets. This study examines the media coverage of this case in the two newspapers Kvällsposten and Kristianstadsbladet. Previous studies shows that there is a difference between tabloids and broadsheet. It also shows that there is a difference between how victims and perpetrators are portrayed, which can be connected to media stereotypes of the “ideal victim” and the “ideal perpetrator”.  Through a qualitative framing analysis, we examine how Martin Trenneborg, Isabel Eriksson and the case is framed in the two Swedish newspapers. The conclusion of this study matches with the previous research. It can be said that there are both similarities and differences between Kvällsposten and Kristianstadsbladet. Both newspapers chose to report on the same events but in different ways. What seperated them were the sensational expressions in the tabloids. The victim and the offender were portrayed differently in both newspapers depending on what the article focused on, as the study’s frames prove.
