Mugshot of Josefina Lovisa Olsson, 1905, Sweden. She was arrested for “stealing 110 kr from a gentleman at a hotel”; the phrasing and crime suggest that she was possibly a sex worker caught stealing from a customer. The amount stolen would be equivalent to around 3200 kr today (or $340); she was later convicted and sentenced to three months of penal labour.
