Criminal Jurisdiction

A Nordic Perspective

By Thomas Elholm, Birgit Feldtmann

Jurisdiction in criminal matters is one of the classical central issues concerning criminal justice. Due to globalization, it seems increasingly relevant for legislators, prosecutors, and judges all over. This book contains a brief overview of the criminal jurisdiction rules in the five Nordic countries: Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway, and Sweden. The structure of the book makes it easy to analyze and compare the rules cross-border. This is relevant due to the close historical and cultural relationship of the five countries, and due to decades of practical cooperation in criminal matters between the countries. The trend to extend domestic jurisdiction is also seen outside the Nordic countries, which makes the book relevant for readers outside the region.
