every five minutes or so.

Saw the Greens overtake the Swedish Xenocraps in real time (now 7.1 to 5.9 and pulling away), and they have now overtaken the Centrists and the Folkies too, to be officially number 3.

This tells us something about the sociology/distribution of the Green vote. I guess it's the big cities that report first; their vote rises as the smaller towns and country districts are counted... does that sound right?

I don't know.  

Looking at the regional numbers it appears all areas of the country are coming in at about the same rate.  The laggard at 79% is Gotenborg, but I've got no clue what that implies/means.

Malmo is now behind in the count.  I'm thinking that is a Swedish Democrat "stronghold" and, because of the immigrant population there, could boost the Social Democrats as well.

?

But I really can't say, for sure.

So far Malmo is going

M - 33%
S - 28%

but the SD are doing better than nationwide with 8.1% and so are the Greens with 8.7%, 161 out of 176 reporting.

It's the other way around. Rural districts are generally smaller (in terms of votes) in Sweden, and so tend to report first. What this seems to indicate is that the Greens are an urban party, which is entirely unsurprising.
