Lots of locked state mysql inserts - slow updates and selects

For some reason all the time when on my processes send selects and updates to a mysql table I see a lot of  inserts to the same table in the locked sate.

That makes the initial selects and updates very slow like 40 seconds to a minute for every select or update.

How can I fix this?
