The book «Forbrytelser i utvalg» gives an overveiw of specific types of crime; violent crimes, sexual crimes, property crimes and drug crimes. The purpose of this book is to provide increased knowledge about these crimes, which are important in today's criminal justice system, both principally and practically. The book supplements «Frihet, forbrytelse og straff – en generell fremstilling av norsk strafferett» (2019). All of the authors are members of the research group for criminal law and criminal procedure at the Faculty of Law in Bergen.

The target group is anyone who studies, works with or otherwise is interested in criminal law. The book is pedagogically structured, and is adapted as a teaching aid for students. In the autumn of 2020, the book was part of the main literature in JUS241 Criminal Law. The analysis of these various crimes is also relevant for graduates who are working with criminal law.
