^Remember as well those graphs show total murders in that year. So one would expect when the population was smaller in 1960 to have fewer murders.
Their murder rate ended up four times higher by the 90's. Not even the Brits breed that fast.

For that increase, they can and do largely blame the spread of US style gang culture to their shores. Apparently the decrease since then might be from our romantic comedies or something.
