More Swedes are being reported for unpaid debts, and the sums are getting bigger.

Rebecka Öhman at the government agency that recovers debts says they can see how it is easy and quick to borrow money and that this increase in people being unable to pay their loans is coming from society's move towards using more credit, as well as a move to a more digital way of handling transactions.

But despite this the debt agency Kronofogden doesn't see any general negative effect of the pandemic on debts - quite the opposite.

Press play to hear more.
