A series of bombs has exploded in Malmö over the past few days. As most readers know, Malmö is the most culturally enriched city in Sweden, although Gothenburg and the suburbs of Stockholm are rapidly catching up. Malmö is also the largest city in Skåne (southern Sweden), and lies just across the Öresund from Copenhagen. For all I know, the recent bomb blasts may have disturbed the citizens of eastern Copenhagen, if they were not too deeply asleep at the time.
Our Swedish correspondent Alfred Fredriksson has translated a video and provided other translated material about recent events in Malmö. Many thanks to Vlad Tepes for subtitling this Swedish news report:
Alfred Fredriksson sends two informative graphs, with accompanying background information:
The first image (translated from the Swedish original) shows the demographics of Malmö for the last eight years, along with a prognosis:
The second image (also translated) shows asylum seekers per million inhabitants in Europe, with Sweden in uncontested first place:
These images may provide a clear explanation as to why we now have bombs exploding, skyrocketing crime, riots, segregation, etc. Not that we didn’t already know why…
By the way — the first graph is for 2006 to 2013. It is important to note that the number of asylum seekers has increased by 30% from 55 000 in 2013 to the prognosis of 79,000 in 2014 (Department of immigration statistics).
When taking into account the new level, the process will go even faster, and there is no sign that immigration won’t continue to increase. And, considering these numbers, Swedes may expect many more bomb blasts in the future.
Below are excerpts from two English-language articles about the recent bombings in Malmö. From Sveriges Radio:
Still No Suspects in Malmö Bomb Blasts
Malmö police have confirmed that bombs were the cause of two large explosions in the Rosengård district of the city last night.
No-one was hurt in the blasts, and police do not yet have any suspects. One car exploded and the other blast was targeted an office.
“Our bomb technicians say the explosive devices at both places were pretty big. We have found pieces of tyre fifty metres away from the site of the car bomb. That’s a sign of a pretty big device detonating”, Linda Pleym from the local police in Malmö tells Swedish Radio in the city.
Police say they do not yet know if the two explosions are linked, and have not yet located any witnesses.

Malmö Office Hit by Second Bomb in Two Days
A second bomb exploded outside a housing office in the Malmö district of Rosengård Saturday night. It had already been targeted by another bomb the previous night.
“Some windows have been broken. Both in the office which belongs to an estate agent and in an apartment next door”, Skåne police chief Magnus Lefèvre told Swedish Radio News Malmö.
This is the third bomb in the same area in just two days, a car bomb also detonated in the area Friday night. Police say they cannot yet confirm if the blasts were linked.
|00:00||It blew up near this window. Inside the building there is damage.|
|00:07||Then there is glass and a wooden fence that was blown away.|
|00:11||The explosion occurred on Ramels väg in Rosengård just after four o’clock this morning,|
|00:16||and woke up residents in a large area around the blast.|
|00:19||Several windows in the area were damaged by the shock wave.|
|00:23||The bomb was placed outside an office building belonging to a real estate company.|
|00:28||The same company that fell victim to the bomb attack last night.|
|00:31||Police do not want to discuss if there is a threat to the company,|
|00:35||but according to Sydsvenskan (newspaper) the company recently evicted several criminals from their rental apartments.|
|00:40||The police see a connection between the attacks.|
|00:43||We know in this case that because it is the same office that has been attacked twice|
|00:47||it is very likely that they are connected.|
|00:51||Technicians have examined the scene, and parts of the bomb will be sent to the state’s technical laboratory for analysis.
