Reading Expressen.

Abstract

The article is based on the ethnological concept of fear as a social phenomenon. The author examines how a popular Swedish daily, Expressen, deals with various occurrences of fear in modern Swedish society. The newspaper is rather sensitive to the social and cultural categories which are perceived to be threatened. Namely, it challenges the notions of security, home, and well-organized society. By showing that none of these categories can be completely trusted, Expressen not only reflects the feeling of fear, but also participates in the social construction of the same.
