The Swedes have unpaid bills of over Skr89 billion which have been lying with bailiff know here as kronofogden.
This according to latest data from bailiffs obtained today which shows the extent of what the Swedish people owe over the last six months.
The total debt has decreased by about three percent since the same time last year. But the overall trend is that it is still high.
“The financial crisis is past and the negative impact has waned. Now the situation is quite stable. The liabilities are at normal levels,” said Alena Koren, operations controller at the bailiff to the Swedish daily Dagens Nyheter.
Regarding the number of debtors, the changes are small. Today there are nearly half a million debtors, of which about 430,000 are private individuals.
The numbers are basically unchanged since last year and many of then, have over 5.5 million different debts to pay.
