Södertälje investigation follows the money

A major campaign against violent organized crime in Södertälje, a city south of Stockholm, has shifted focus to concentrate on cases of money laundering and tax evasion.

Previously, police sought to break up a syndicate comprised of professional criminals, some of whom were violent.

Now, investigators are taking a close look at financial criminality. Tax authorities have already hit some 30 individuals and companies with claims for back taxes amounting to SEK 28 million.
