That would depend on the location, experience, etc. Here are some statistics for univeristy lecturers:

Most importantly it depends on the subject, with hard sciences in the top and humanities in the bottom of the salary range.

What is the actual job title? Is it for
- a tenured "lektor" position?
- a "forskare" researcher position that includes teaching duties ?
- a adjunct (university teacher) position?

As each of these university roles that usually includes degree teaching have different salary levels

I'm considering moving to Sweden as I'm a UK citizen (but living in Australia). Yet a friend of mine told me he's making 45000kr (and 32000kr after tax). He's a senior lecturer at Uppsala Uni. A senior lecturer at my uni makes approx 58000kr a month before tax.
As I'm a statistician, I may consider working in a pharmaceutical company instead of being a lecturer if I really move to Sweden.

Yes, 40-50k is a quite normal salary for a lecturer in the natural sciences. Above 50k you have to become a professor.

32000 after tax would be a pretty good salary. Remember that you don't have to pay any health insurance.
