Why does Malmo in particular have a high murder rate by Scandinavian standards?

Vibrant gang activity involving organised crime both from Sweden and Denmark. Malmö is a gateway to further north.

Could the demographics possibly be a factor? How does it stack up to say, Stockholm?

Sure it can. Serbian/Bosnian and Iraqi mafia-type organisations are present in Malmö. The % of immigrants is not that different than Stockholm, but AFAIK Malmö is THE "Rust belt" city of Sweden, suffers from high unemployment and poverty.

Must be mostly the Iraqis. Serbians and Bosnians probably commit very little crime

Their isn't a U.S big city (Metro of at least 2 million with a central city) that routinely puts numbers lower than Malmo.

Not really???? It is gang warfare among all those groups isn't it, so wouldn't all parties equally be at fault if their fighting each other?

Hell yes. The Serbian mafia came to Sweden already in the late 80's, is well established and a large player there. Can rival any motorcycle gang.

Sounds like the Balkan folks (Bosnians and what not) are the scapegoat in Sweden, same as the Chechens in Russia.

The global homicide rate stands at about 6.2 per 100,000 folks (intentional homicide, not war related deaths). Just for the record, the US homicide rate is below the world rate, at about 4.2 per 100,000, and the European homicide rate is even lower than that.
