This weekend The Police Museum in Stockholm opened an exhibition of photographs depicting people who had committed crimes. The photo above was registered at the police in 1895 and portrays Carl Wilhelm Strand ( aka "Piggen"). He was then 18 years old and the card says that he had been
arrested for theft. The exhibition will be on until 20 July. See also our story about the Sydney Police Mugshots.

Is this the face of crime of the late 19th century? I doubt it - the worst criminals, the masters of war and exploatation were never put on trial.
