In Sweden, most people book a test by logging in to the regional pages of Sweden's online primary care guide www.1177.se, which requires you to have a BankID or Mobile BankID, one of a handful of foreign e-legitimisation services, or Telia e-legitimisation (which was included on identify cards issued by Skatteverket until 2017).
You can find more on logging in to www.1177.se here.
This makes getting a test a bit of a headache if you don't yet have any of these forms of identification.

Can I get tested if I'm not resident in Sweden?
People who are only visiting Sweden, or who don't yet have residency permits, can still get tested for Covid-19 by contacting a primary health care clinic.
According to 1177, it is up to each region to decide whether to charge for Covid-19 treatment in Sweden. But testing for an active infection and treatment if you are ill is usually free of charge, even for members of the EU who lack any health insurance.
If you ring the foreign language coronavirus information line on 0812368000, you can get information on how to get tested in 12 languages: English, Arabic, Persian, Dari, Tigrinja, Amarinja, Russian, Bosnian, Croatian, Serbian and Spanish.
What if I'm living in Sweden without a residency permit or valid visa?
Even if you are undocumented or have remained in Sweden after your residency permit has expired, you can still get tested by phoning your local primacy health clinic. Under Swedish law, they cannot report someone seeking care to police, border police, or the migration authorities.
Here's a video put together by Sweden's regions on how to get tested.
