Interestingly, despite the country's extensive planning prior to passing the legislation, the first couple years into this novel project nothing much happened at all.
Police made very few arrests of johns and prostitution in Sweden, which had previously been legalized, went on pretty much as it had gone on before.
Sweden's law enforcement has found that the prostitution legislation benefits them in dealing with all sex crimes, particularly in enabling them to virtually wipe out the organized crime element that plagues other countries where prostitution has been legalized or regulated.
This Swedish experiment is the single, solitary example in a significant sized population of a prostitution policy that works.
The exploiter/buyers need to be punished, and the victim/prostitutes need to be helped.
The Swedish government put up extensive funds and the country's police and prosecutors, from the top ranks down to the officer on the beat, were given intensive training and a clear message that the country meant business.
The man has now been transferred to Skåne province, where he is in custody waiting for the expulsion to be enforced.
