Take The Bus
From Redditor u/SwedishDude:
For getting around your best bets are probably by bus or rented car. Buses are cheap and go pretty much everywhere. Plenty also have Wifi and power included with the ticket price.
Driving shouldn't be a problem, swedes drive a bit faster than allowed but not generally recklessly. Many medium-sized roads have speed cameras but you're always warned beforehand with signs. Highways are broad, straight, fast and boring.
You might want to look into visiting a musical festival as there'll be a few to choose from and are probably the place where Swedes are the most friendly.

Respect The Queue
From Redditor u/HerrAndersson:
Respect the queues. If something even resembles a queue it probably is one. It's okay to ask if it's a queue. But if you cut in line, even by mistake, people will hate you. They will probably not say anything to you, but they will hate you.

Shoes Off Indoors, Please
From Redditor u/Stove-pipe:
Remove your shoes at the instant entering a person's home. Always wear a reflective "charm" or "reflexband" when going outside, cause it gets incredibly dark most of the day. You can buy a reflex and at stores like "clasohlson".
