Swedish Banking

We opened a bank account last time we were in Stockholm. It wasn't too painful; Margaret had made an appointment for us to meet her banker. I wired over a small amount of money from my US bank, although it took a few emails and Google searches to find all the right codes to satisfy all parties.

But our test was ultimately successful and I was able to access our account through the internet. (It took a bit of trial and error, given my limited Swedish!) Next step is to transfer a big chunk over so I can pay Tony, as he's sent me the signed land contract. I plan to pick a day when the US economy has good news. Wish me luck...
