Been in the city centre all my life with a Rolex on the wrist. Never been robbed or anything like that. It's really safe

Honestly pretty chill if you act normal. But be careful of: Biskopsgården (especially the south side of it), Tynnered, Backa, Hjällbo, Hammarkullen, Lövgärdet, Bergsjön and Gårdsten.

Volvo Cars HQ is in Gothenburg and the Volvo CEO had this to say:

"Speaking to the daily Svenska Dagbladet, Volvo CEO Hakan Samuelsson lamented the fact that the auto manufacturer has been gradually losing its appeal to foreign tech experts and engineers, as well as top managers. The problem, according to him, partly lies in the fact that the specialists are reluctant to move to Sweden’s second largest city of Gothenburg, where Volvo’s headquarters are located, because of the arguably high crime rate."
