Stolen money eludes police

A large portion of stolen money is never recovered by the police, according to Swedish Radio News. Last year, the financial police only managed to track down SEK 2.2 million, compared to 13 million the year before.

Stefan Kronkvist, chief of the financial police, admits the police recovered less last year but that it varies from year to year. He tells Swedish Radio News it is not because the police have necessarily gotten worse, but that it depends on other circumstances.

According to the Swedish Trade Federation, Swedish business lost SEK 1.2 billion last year through false bills they were sent. Per Geijer, responsible for security matters with the trade federation, says that the police lack competence and that their manner of working needs to be simplified through fast decisions.
