Looks like you really got caught in bad luck. Have you already got your work permit and when was it issued?

There is a rule that you have to join work within a month once your work permit is issued, else it can be a problem for you later when trying to renew the visa.

In Sweden, since you have not actually joined work, you dont have any legal status or compensation possibilities - you are pretty much at the mercy of your employer.

Have you written to your new employer about the financial soup you are in? Maybe they can help.

Or ask the old employer if they need your services for a few months more.

I don't think they can do that if you have a written contract. They could cancel the contract if they are short of work but then you should get a month's salary. But I'm afraid that you have accepted a postponement without compensation in this case.
