This article is a summary of a speech at the 100th anniversary of the Swedish Association of Criminalists (Svenska kriminalistföreningen). The historical development of the Swedish prison population from its beginning until today is shortly described. The author argues that a considerable proportion of the increase in the Swedish prison population during the last 50 years is due to repressive policies concerning narcotic drugs. These policies not only increase the prison population, but also cause hundreds of deaths each year. Less repressive narcotic drugs policies would therefore both decrease the number of prisoners and save lives.[Title in English: Swedish Incarceration Rates, 1910-2010.]
