The Local reported that rape, arson and another Malmö shooting were reported during Sweden’s Midsummer celebrations on Friday night, but most police regions summed up the big holiday as "a regular weekend".

· “We had a bit more drunkenness and scuffles, but it’s nothing serious,” Bergslagen Region spokesman Jens auf der Heide.

· Örebro : “But overall, it has been relatively quiet throughout the region. It has been like a normal weekend,” Per Vikman of the Bergslagen Police said.

Calm in western Sweden
In Western Sweden, the Midsummer celebrations did not cause any cause for concern.
“It has been a very quiet night and we have nothing to report,” police spokesman Jens Christensen said.

Malmö:

Another shooting incident occurred but it was not immediately clear if it was connected to last week’s fatal shootings. One man was shot dead on Thursday in the city’s Lindängen district.

“Otherwise, it’s been like a normal payday weekend and absolutely nothing special. There was drunkenness and some fighting but nothing we couldn’t’ handle,” South Region spokesman Fredrik Bratt said.

Midsummer is the period centered upon the summer solstice that take place on a day between June 19 and June 25 and the preceding evening. The exact dates vary between different cultures.

In Sweden, the Midsummer is such an important festivity that there have been serious discussions to make the Midsummer’s Eve into the National Day of Sweden, instead of June 6.
