All in all, something like fifty cars have been wrecked. It is difficult to give any definite figures, since hardly anyone has accurate figures. These fires are always one alarm. Several cars can burn in the same alarm. When one is ignited, at least the adjacent cars burn at the same time. There has also been a few big fires, with ten cars each.
Lund police have been running on high gear throughout the summer, but no arrests have been reported. In other words, the police have no idea who could be behind the acts.
Lund is home to just under 100,000 people, which is by no means a big city. Compared to that, the number of arsons is huge. How many cars have burned in Pori or Kuopio during the summer, is a number one could compare.
