I have around 2million kr in my bank accounts.
I have a strong degree from a good British university.
Is it possible to move here, buy an apartment with this money and get a job in Sweden?
Any job would be great. As long as I can afford to live, it doesn’t need to be lots of money.
And since I’ll own my own property, I am somewhat self sufficient.
I live in the UK at the moment.

Do I need to secure a job before I move here, or can I move here based on the money I have and buy property first, before finding a job?

You will be surprised how fast 2 million SEK can disappear, so plan to get a job asap if and when you get here.

Even if you own your own apartment and live frugally, you will need a minimum of 10000 SEK per month to live decently if its just on your own.

Also, better to buy property on a mortgage loan than use your hard cash; invest that with a 50% risk across stocks, mutual funds and bonds.

The problem is he thinks sweden is a paradise without realizing that he will lose his 2 million in sweden to get nothing in return. The marketing about sweden abroad is massive and some people like him fall for that trap.

The stock market is not for everybody and not everybody can see the potential the stock market has to increase your net worth.
