Title Arson
Author Gerell, Manne
Editor Väfors-Fritz, Marie ; Khoshnood, Ardavan
Date 2019
English abstract
Arson, particularly when it concerns car fires, attracts a lot of attention when it occurs. A burning car is a strong visual symbol and pictures of these are often used in media, which further increases the visual impact. Fires lead to huge material costs, and can also contribute to increased insecurity in the community through the signal of disorder sent by an uncontrolled fire or charred vehicle wreckage. This chapter discusses intentional outdoor fires in Malmö, with a particular focus on car fires. More specifically, the chapter will explore levels and developments, possible explanations and motives, and affected locations.
