Excerpt: Olofstrom Municipality (Olofstroms kommun) is the only inland municipality of Blekinge County in southern Sweden. It borders to Osby Municipality, Kristianstad Municipality, Bromolla Municipality, Solvesborg Municipality, Karlshamn Municipality, Tingsryd Municipality, and Almhult Municipality. The town of Olofstrom is the seat of the municipality. The amalgamation of the former units in this area took place in 1967 when the market town Olofstrom (itself detached from Jamshog in 1941) was merged with Kyrkhult and Jamshog. Notable person that Olofstrom counts as theirs is Nobel Prize winning author Harry Martinson (1904-1978- prize in 1974) who was born in Jamshog within the municipality. There are 5 localities classified as urban areas (tatort in Swedish) in Olofstrom Municipality. In addition to that, there is one more recognized locality. In the table the urban areas and localities are listed according to the size of the population as of December 31, 2006. The municipal seat is in bold characters. The municipality is covered with forests and lakes. It labels itself The southernmost wildlife in Sweden, probably because there are scarsely any forests or lakes south of the Blekinge province. The highest point in the province and county of Blekinge, Ravabacken (189,65 m), is located in the northern part of the municipality. The increased use of cars in the 1950s and 60s was the great boost for the municipality. Today the car industry, dominated by Volvo Cars, is the largest employer in Olofstrom with 2,400 employees, and some more working in other companies connected to this industry. ...More: http: //booksllc.net/?id=13084
