Since I have written the following book myself, I will not give it a place in the ranking. But because I believe it contains a lot of valuable and entertaining information for any Sweden visitor, I would like to mention it on this page anyways.
Ideal for all who want to understand the sometimes strange Swedish culture and avoid pitfalls when spending time with Swedes. How to be Swedish is now available on Amazon, as e-book and paperback.
Focus on sightseeing, but also general information about Sweden. Great if you just make a short trip to Sweden and want to experience interesting places.
Compact size. Great fit for your pocket. And really funny. If you rather want to have a good laugh than high density of facts about Swedish culture, this should be the book of your choice.
Also fun to read but more detailed and a bit more clunky compared to Xenophobe’s Guide to the Swedes.
Another classic book about Swedish culture. Easy to digest and a good preparation for your trip to Sweden.
This book helped me understanding Swedish culture in more depth. I strongly recommend it, if you want to move to Sweden and get to know how and why Swedes are the way they are.
I hope you found a good book in this list. As soon as I read another book that I consider valuable for Sweden travellers, I will add it to the list.
Have a nice trip to Sweden!
