Lantmäteriets National maps are availiable in the scales 1:1 000 000 (Sweden map), 1:250 000 (Overview map), 1:100 000 (Roadmap) and 1:10 000 (Real property map) with national coverage. There is also a terrain map in the scale 1:50 000. The agency is funded by charging for data and thus very little open data is available. A couple of map products is provided (http://www.lantmateriet.se/en/Maps-and-geographic-information/Valj-produktomrade/#faq:Digitala-allmanna-kartor). Data can't be downloaded in bulk though. The license is not open: http://www.lantmateriet.se/en/Maps-and-geographic-information/Geodata-services/Villkor-och-avgifter/
The only openly licensed map data (in the scale 1:1 000 000) is available at this url: http://www.lantmateriet.se/Kartor-och-geografisk-information/Kartor/Sverigekartor/Gratis-Sverigekartor/
