"Some weeks there are 2000 people applying for asylum in Sweden," Mats Johansson tells Swedish Radio P4.
The biggest groups of refugees are currently coming from Syria and Eritrea. So far this year, 39,000 people have applied for asylum in Sweden. That may increase to 65,000 people by the end of the year, says Mats Johansson.
Most asylum seekers come to Malmö, but Stockholm and Gothenburg is also under pressure to find accommodation to those arriving.
