EDITOR'S PREFACE The purpose of this book is to provide a fairly broad survey of the Swedish legal system. In order to avoid possible disappointment, it would seem important to make clear from the outset what kind of questions the authors propose to answer and what groups of readers they are addressing. The easiest way to do this is to set out what we are not purporting to do. Thus, the book is not intended to serve as a primer for students who possess no knowledge of "the law", i. e. of the concepts, ideas and solutions of at least one legal system. Nor is it the purpose of the authors to give practitioners the kind of precise, techni cal answers to isolated questions that they need when advising their clients on the proper course of action in business, or litigation, con ducted within the framework of the legal system described.

The True Story of a Swedish Detective Inspector Fighting Prostitution Detective inspector Simon Haggstrom is head of the Stockholm Police Prositution Unit. Everyday, he meets those who inhabit the shadowy underbelly of Stockholm; the prostituted women, and men, who try to keep their business hidden and the punters who at all cost want to avoid being caught. Even though Sweden has a strict anti-prostitution law, business is thriving. Shadow's Law tells the true stories of the people Simon Haggstrom and his co-workers encounter every day; young girls facing dangers they did not foresee, seven foreign women working and living together in a one bedroom apartement, Lovisa, born into a life of drugs and prostitution, and of course, the men who buy sex. These are their stories as they have never been told before."
