      Note: article from 2017. It reports on Rinkeby, a problematic suburb in Stockholm where riots happened after an anti-immigration statement from Trump. He had said “You look at what’s happening last night in Sweden”, while nothing had happened.

      Some people launched this fact-based log site in response: https://lastnight.in/Sweden/. Unfortunately, the site shows that rarely a few days pass without a bombing/shooting/... incident.

      This articles proves useful in my current housing hunt.

      "But it is undoubtedly true that delinquency is a problem, particularly at night. ", "it was only the second shooting in Rinkeby in five years", "blames this outlaw mentality on segregation", "90% of people living here either being born abroad or having parents who were", "Sweden has the most ethnically segregated cities of all the groups of countries in the OECD".

      I like late night runs, so I'll avoid this area :(

      “The thing that they have in the US is starting to come to Europe now, that whole gangster thing, with the music and everything.”

      Well US friends, here you have a vague US stereotype! Not sure if the author should've included this quote without further motivation or comparison data.
