The Prosecutor-General is the highest-ranked prosecutor in the country and the only public prosecutor in the Supreme Court.
The Prosecutor-General is also the head of the Swedish Prosecution Authority.
The Swedish Prosecution Authority incorporates all prosecutors in Sweden with the exception of the approximately 80 prosecutors who are employed at the Swedish National Economic Crimes Bureau. The Prosecutor-General, however, is also the highest-ranked prosecutor for the prosecutors attached to the Economic Crimes Bureau.
The Office of the Prosecutor-General is the ”head office” of the Swedish Prosecution Authority with responsibility for legal development, the operations of the Supreme Court and administrative tasks.
