The proportion of foreign nationals sentenced to prison in Sweden has never been as great as it is now.

There is a problem, says the government. Suggestions for more people to serve their sentences in their home countries are now being embraced by consultative bodies.

In the first half of 2013, around 4500 people were sent to Swedish prisons, according to prison authority statistics. Of these, 35 percent were not Swedish citizens.

This is a record share. In 2003 by comparison, the proportion was 25 percent. But the increase has been greatest in the last two years.
