Sven Axelsson was born in the Swedish town of Uppsala in 1962 to parents Per and Maj Axelsson. He has a sister, Gunilla Bergersson, and a brother, Gunnar Axelsson, both considerably older than himself (15 and 12 years respectively), so in practice he grew up as the only child in the family. At the age of 6, the family moved to the small town of Enköping, and then at the age of 8, they moved on to Karlskrona at the south east coast of Sweden. He moved to Göteborg at the age of 17 and is still living there after brief excursions to Dublin, Ireland and Lowell MA, USA. Below you’ll find some more specific information about Sven’s achievements in life.
