As a contribution to the geographic coverage of EMPOP, currently the best available forensic mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) database, a total of 299 Swedish individuals were analysed by sequencing of the first and second hypervariable regions of the mtDNA genome. In this sample set, a total of 179 different haplotypes were detected. The genetic diversity was estimated to be 0.9895 (±0.0023), and the random match probability was 1.39 %. The most abundant haplogroups were HV (including its subhaplogroups H and V) with a frequency of 46.5 %, followed by haplogroup U (including its subhaplogroup K) at 27.8 %, haplogroup T at 10.0 % and haplogroup J at 7.0 %, a distribution that is consistent with previous observations in other European populations.
