En kvalitativ innehållsanalys av Aftonbladet, Dagens Nyheter, Göteborgs-Posten och GT:s rapportering om dubbelmordet på Vårväderstorget den 18:e mars 2015
On the 18th of March 2015, two men were shot dead at a restaurant in the Gothenburg suburb of Biskopsgården. The city of Gothenburg has seen an increase in gun-related violence since 2011, reaching a peak in numbers in 2013 with 56 reported shootings. The shootings in March were hugely covered in Swedish media and caused Prime Minister Stefan Löfven to make an early exit from a European Union meeting in Brussels to visit the crime site. This Bachelor‟s thesis aims to explore and compare the media coverage of the Biskopsgården shootings. By using a method of ethnographic content analysis it analyses selected categories of the journalistic material from four major Swedish newspapers during a time period representing the direct aftermath of the shootings. The study is based on the theories about episodic and thematic framing, and also individual-, societal- and punitive- casual and treatment responsibility brought forth by Shanto Iyengar.
