A note on taxis: Pricing is essentially unregulated in Sweden. It is therefore essential to choose taxi companies with good reputation and check that the standard fare posted on a yellow sticker on the side window is not unreasonable. It is calculated based on a standard trip of 10km taking 15 minutes.  Typically it should be less than 400 SEK. Often the taxis offer fixed price to and from the airports. Make sure to inquire.
