On the square are grieving set-up hundreds of gravljus in a pattern that creates the names of the two young men who died in a basement a stone's throw away.

a Few metres away, tells inrikesminstern for DN why he is on the spot:
" I think it is important that when there is serious criminal activity so, Sweden must feel that it is a matter for the whole of Sweden. And that is why it is important to be here when three murders have occurred in such a short time. I am ultimately responsible for policing in my role as minister of the interior, and my main tool is to give the police the resources and tools they need, " he says.
that the government wants to increase the police presence to get to grips with the kind of problems that Satra are now experiencing.
" We are now making the biggest bet in the modern times with the police, with 10,000 new police officers up to 2024. We have implemented a wide range of straffskärpningar to get to serious criminal activity and we will continue. We have put forward a new legislation, if, for example, the data storage, which is a necessary tool for accessing the gangs, " he says.
the home secretary also adds that he hopes to be able to put forward a legislative proposal before the summer, which will make it possible for the police to decide when to put up cameras to access the narkotikaförsäljningen in different areas.
– You have a problem with open drogförsäljning in the areas around it and it is it which fuels these criminal networks and gangs. So that is why it is important to push back the drug dealing, and to say to people who are not experiencing that pot is a dangerous drug, that when buying it so as to favour also the criminal networks that lead to firings around the country.
" I can see that the police move their positions in very many suburban areas. It has a lot more presence now locally. Put up more cameras, which makes the open drug dealing have to move away from the center or metro stops. It creates increased security in these areas. But to think that in a few months ' time or in a very short time to turn a trend that has gone in the wrong direction for decades, it is not credible. But it is long-term work with more police officers but also the prevention of the social work of social work and the school that will determine how we will succeed with this.
in the area are worried after the recent våldsupptrappning – it tells numerous people that the DN has spoken with. In the daily meeting with customers in the local Ica store notice store manager Pontus to many are scared, " he says.
– It is uneasily. There are a lot of concerns from customers. There are many who are talking about it. You are worried for their children and people they know. Some are talking about moving, " he says.
Several people have testified that it often is an accumulation of young people who often find themselves in Sätra centre, and that there can sometimes be messy. Knarkförsäljningen is also, at times, completely open on the square. At the same time, telling several people about it so far has not passed over the public, but primarily has affected the people that in some way have been involved in the drug trade.Sebastian Kallander with her son, Alex.

– It is important. If you think of the terror attack on Drottninggatan: what was it that brought down the offender? There was video surveillance. There you have the answer, " he says.
When it comes to the recent killings so says however several people who were familiar with the mordoffren that they find it difficult to see any connection to the crime. Of the four teenagers that DN has spoken with there is a large consensus that the violence now threatens to affect even people who are not themselves directly involved in the crime.
– basically it is about how you can have been acquainted with someone that in turn may sell. And then can you suffer yourself, without having done anything, " says a boy.
His three girlfriends agree with him, and one of the girls describes a resignation linked to violence in the area.
" I'm not even surprised anymore over the killings. It happens one by one. Before the shot not killing someone for a small debt. What do you do now, " she says.
since 1998, and he agrees with the image of that many are shocked after the recent murder. At the same time he is hopeful for the future.
– The general is that people feel a strong concern here for now. But for me, the area is a good area. And now it must be done the proper steps. Before it was a bit småkriminalitet, that people stole regplåtar and someone who's bought a joint. But it was barely a fight at all.
