Hi Carlos254,

You should actually be able to get a personnummer without waiting for your residence permit, on the basis of your marriage to an EU citizen. First you need to make sure the Skatteverket is aware of your marriage, and you will need to go together with all the necessary paperwork. Then your personnummer should be sent to you. This only takes a week or two.

Next, the harder part, which is to get an ID kort. To do this, you will need to pay the fee, again return to the Skatteverket with your partner (she is the 'approved attestor') and apply.

You should receive a notification letter from MV stating they have received your application and will let you know when they have made a decision, to your home address. It took mine about 2 weeks to receive.
