On Monday 18 November, The Crown Princess Couple were in Möllevången, Malmö, where they visited Fryshuset's project for people who want to end their criminal lifestyles. The Crown Princess Couple also visited the Swedish Police Service to find out about policing in the city.

At Möllevången in Malmö, Fryshuset works to prevent and combat gang crime. These operations are carried out throughout Skåne.

During their visit, The Crown Princess Couple met a former criminal involved in Passus, Fryshuset's project for people who want to end their criminal lifestyles. During their meeting, the man – whose identity is protected – spoke about his life in depth. He also talked about how his client coach from Fryshuset helped him to leave the criminal world behind him and to build a new life with his family.
