Functional CV in Sweden?

Is it ok?

Does anyone know if a functional CV is acceptable in Sweden as opposed to a chronological one? I am applying for a job that is way off what have done for most of my professional life so my standard CV would look a bit weird...

My experience is that most people here want to see a cronolgical cv. Try to make a point of showing ANY experience within the swedish workplace. They dont seem to be that interested in past life experience.
