Clues to the Crime


The Police Museum

2021-01-27 — 2023-01-31

A broken table, broken glass, and a scattered deck of cards. A watch, some liquor bottles and blood splatter. What has happened? And what is the significance of the table leg thrown in the bushes?

In the Police Museum’s exhibition Clues to the Crime, a crime scene is set at the center. Step into the role as a forensic technician, approach the crime scene, and think about what you see.

Unsuspecting criminals almost always leave clues behind them. What could’ve happened? How many people were there? Why are there only three table legs at the built-up crime scene?

Using real criminal cases from the 20th century to the present day, this exhibition describes some of the methods and techniques used by the police. You’ll find out how DNA technology helped the police identify the person who murdered Anna Lindh and how the police produced a perpetrator profile in order to track down the Laser Man. Learn more about various police methods, such as securing blood splashes, fingerprints, DNA, show tracks, and much more!

In addition, you can see objects from real cases, for instance the murder of Gustav III and the serial shooter Peter Mang’s crime.
