One in two Swedes thinks that local politicians and local government officials are corrupt, according to a study by the Finance Ministry.

In the study researchers polled 1,500 randomly selected Swedes and asked them how common they thought bribes and nepotism were in local government. Six out of ten answered they thought corruption was quite common or very common.

The study also found that Swedes in general are more suspicious of local politicians than of national politicians, Swedish Radio reports.

A range of corruption cases in Gothenburg and Solna local councils have hit the headlines in Sweden over the past few years.
