swedan‘Shia Muslims in Sweden’, a book jointly written by Göran Larsson and David Thurfjell, has recently been released in Sweden.

The new study titled ‘Shiamuslimer i Sverige – en översikt’ (‘Shia Muslims in Sweden’) by Göran Larsson, professor of

religious studies at the University of Gothenburg, and David Thurfjell from Södertörn University explores the Shia landscape in Sweden.

The study was ordered by the Swedish Commission for Government Support to Faith Communities (SST).

The book sheds light on the present situation of Shia Muslims in Sweden, how they are organized and the ethnic and religious orientations that exist.

According to the work, the first Shia Muslims in Sweden came to the small town of Trollhättan to work for the automobile manufacturer Saab after fleeing from Uganda and Idi Amin’s regime. Since then, Sweden has received Shias from for example Afghanistan, Lebanon, Iraq, India, Pakistan and Iran.
