In this week's episode of Sweden in Focus we discuss: Halloween in Sweden, Nato, cable damage in the Baltic Sea, popular Swedish TV shows, and we answer readers' questions on Sweden's new salary requirement for work permit holders.


Host Paul O’Mahony in Stockholm is joined from Malmö by The Local's Emma Löfgren and Becky Waterton.

Here are links to some of the stories we discuss this week:


All Saints

Nato & Baltic security 

Swedish TV series 

Work permits

Correction: A previous version of the podcast stated that OB-tillägg is not counted as salary. In reality, it can be counted as salary if it occurs on a regular basis and is mentioned in your employment contract. We apologise for the confusion.
