You should check with someone more qualified than thelocal forums.
The image you gave is of a Swedish Passport - does this mean you have been accepted for Swedish citizenship ?

Dissingem

well if you look at the text I quoted it refers to the world as a whole, so those population figures are also for the whole world. Much to the dismay of the SD Sweden is also a part of the world and the changes to the world reflect in changes in Sweden. Some good and some bad.

Connect to a 4G mobile phone network ?
I think most smartphones can connect to the 4G n/w and then share the internet connection over WiFi to the laptop / tablet. Halebop is one cheap pay as you go provider.

Here's a helpful guide to decoding the parking regulations
sounds like you parked on a cleaning morning or afternoon for the 3rd fine

http://www.stockholmparkering.se/SiteAsset...Vagmarken_2.pdf

you're also not supposed to park closer than 12 ? m to a junction or zebra crossing

Beg, borrow, steal a Swedish Address to go on your CV - 10 years ago when I was in your position I went from no interviews to 75% plus interview rate - all of which I was offered after my CV had a Stockholm address.

If you have a written contract then you may have a chance. LLHope - isn't there a "small claims" process that might be faster & less costly ?

Plenty of IT jobs in Stockholm that don't require Swedish & a shortage of qualified staff so if you have a solid CV and useful skills you should have an OK chance, obviously the more Swedish you have the easier it will be, but a lot of employers are going to prioritise the technical skills before the language ones - plenty of projects with a mix of nationalities where the working language is english.

good luck

I would try and do some networking, maybe join some of the meetup.com events

To add to what Emerentia said
it is the certificate to prove you are unmarried that is the challenge as the UK system
(well England - don't definitely know about Scotland) does not have a population register and
therefore you cannot have a "proof" printed out on request. But maybe the authorities in Sweden are
a bit more clued up now.

The other day my gf and I got stopped outside the local coop and were asked by a Swedish lady for money for food & coffee. My gf being a kind person bought the lady a bun in the shop & offered it to her as we left - she refused so I guess the money was really intended for drink or drugs. The 2 Roma ladies up the road were happier & at least said "tack s? mycket"

I would try and get a personal recommendation and find an accountant that specialises in the field of work you are operating in.

i.e. softwear - get a software accountant
art - get an art accountant

the approaches and expenses are really rather different

at a risk of feeding the troll

perhaps if SH had let AR finish without interrupting him she might have got a proper answer.
I think JA is where he is voluntarily, which is more than you can say for the people who ended up dead due to his recklessness.
