Swedish investigative journalism
The largest evening paper in Sweden is Aftonbladet. One of the reasons for this might be the cutting edge journalism that is displayed on their website. I have translated the article so that everyone can enjoy the pulitzer prize winning stuff that Aftonbladet is made of (I have really tried to make a fair translation keeping the grammatical errors).
One gets really angry
The speed camera caught Johan, 44, on picture
Johan Spennare, 44, was on his way home to Kumla after a day in Gothenburg.
And didn’t keep check of his spedometer.
– I was kind of tired in the evening and then came a flash, he says.
A speed camera had taken a snap shot of Johan Spennares driving while he was driving 98 km/h on a road with a speed limit of 90 km/h.
– One mostly gets really upset, but there is no one to direct the anger towards.
The speeding occured last summer. Johan Spennare thinks that the 1500 kr fine was quite hefty. But they have had an effect on him.
– After this I bought a GPS that gives a warning for speed cameras. But I also drive slower now. One gets an eye opener.
After reading an article like this one can simply understand what makes Aftonbladet the leading evening paper in Sweden. The urgency of last years news of a man being caught by a speed camera.
