Abstract [en]

On September 10th 2003 the Swedish foreign minister Anna Lindh was brutally murdered in a shopping mall in central Stockholm. An intense police pursuit was initiated immediately and shortly after, a man who later proved to be innocent was portrayed as the murderer in the Swedish media. The main purpose of this essay was to examine how the suspect and the police were described in the evening newspaper Aftonbladet and the morning newspaper Dagens Nyheter. Do the descriptions differ in any way? A total of fifteen texts were examined, eight articles from Aftonbladet and seven from Dagens Nyheter. The method we used were critical discourse analysis, with focus on theories like media logic and representation. The result showed that both DN and Aftonbladet used dramaturgical methods as intensification and polarization in their reporting. Both papers also engaged in an extensive description of the 35-year-old's personal history and payed little or no mean to press ethics, in terms of personal integrity. A fact that could indicate the growing convergence between evening and morning press.
