Homicide rates have been higher in Finland than in the other Western and Nordic European countries for decades. The aim of the FHM is to monitor the homicide phenomenon, to create a database for in-depth research, and to serve crime prevention and prevention-targeting purposes. The FHM database is based on the police data, i.e. information produced during preliminary investigations (closed cases).
