Any statistics supporting that? Official criminal statistics for Norway show around 45% commit crimes again in Norway in the period 2000-2005, half of them within the first 2 years. BTW, repeated crimes result in longer sentences.

Could of course be that Swedes are much more criminal than Norwegians, no surprise.
