In 2017 more than 7,200 rapes were reported to the police in Sweden, which correspond to about 20 rapes per day.
It is the Crime Prevention Council, BRÅ, that presents the shocking new figures.
The dark figures (non-reported rapes) are likely many times as high.
It is said that they do not know why the number of reported rapes is rising:
Compared to 2016, more rapes have been reported. 7,230 rapes were reported in 2017, which is a 10 percent increase from the year before. Why the figure has risen so much is nothing they want to speculate on at BRÅ.
"We have not looked at why, but have just produced the figures," says BRÅ's press service.
However, another report from BRÅ shows that every third Swedish woman, 31 percent, now feel quite or very unsafe when going outside in their own residential area in the evening. This is an increase of 6 percent over three years. 12 percent of the women say that the fear has led them to stay indoors after dark.
And this fear has increased with the increasing immigration from the Middle East and Africa, so it's not rocket science, BRÅ!
