Halmstad is the city of the rich

According to Halmstad's local newspaper Hallandsposten, every 35th inhabitant of Per's home town earns more than 1 million SEK (approx. 110,000 USD) per year. The figures are taken from the latest tax statistics in Sweden which are from the year 1998. The person who earned the most was company owner Svante Berger, whose annual earnings were 206 million SEK (22.5 million USD). Per Gessle is #7 on the list.

An interesting fact is that there are still more unemployed people (2,605) in Halmstad than millionaires (2,475).
