Didn't Malmo and a few other Russian cities have a murder rate around 5-15 murders per 100,000. Also I'm surprised a

I meant 5-15 but i said 10 instead (I already fixed my mistake). By the way is that eleven for Malmo locality itself or for malmo munincipality or Metro Malmo. I heard metro or municipality of malmo had as high as thirty murders but I'm unsure as those sources are right wing sources that report my cousins area, Enfield, London as a no go zone, but it is near impossible to make murder statistics into misleading stats. Either way with a murder rate con 3.4 malmo is still a very dangerous city by European standards, even thought in the U.S that would be considered the rate of a middle to lower middle class suburb.

3.4 is an extremely high number, if you compare with Oslo, Stockholm (1.3) and Helsinki (1.1), but 11 murders is still not a lot per se. The notion that Malmö would be an particularly dangerous city is nothing but breitbart propaganda. Despite those murders, Malmö is ridiculously safe, just like all of Scandinavia.

I guess it's all relative. 3.4 may be considered high in Europe but would probably be low in some other countries. Neither number is really that high overall, but it's good to keep track of these things since it allows us to monitor trends.

Yes, sure, especially for Scandinavia it's a huge number, and should ring some warning bells (as it has). But it is relative. The Helsinki number is from 2015, in 2014 the homicide number was 1.6. In reality it was a difference of only 4 homicides, and Helsinki wasn't any safer in 2015, or more dangerous in 2014.

Malmo is still ridiculously safe by world standards. Iin the US it would be considered practically Tokyo by big city standards. I think only San Diego, San Jose, Seattle, and Portland would have lower murder rates among big cities, and NYC is about at the same level as far as I can recall
