Finnish Provinces Lead Homicide Statistics

In proportion to the population, most homicides in Finland are committed in provincial cities, according to the daily Helsingin Sanomat. Homicide statistics are led by Imatra, Lahti, Kerava, Joensuu and Pori. Larger cities, Helsinki, Espoo and Tampere witness fewer homicides than the national average. The Helsingin Sanomat survey, carried out by the National Research Institute of Legal Policy, looked into homicides in towns with over 25,000 inhabitants committed during the years 2000 - 2006.
