Husie was a city district (Swedish: stadsdel) in the north-east of Malmö Municipality, Sweden. On 1 July 2013, it was merged with Rosengård, forming Öster.[1] In 2012, Husie had a population of 20,769 of the municipality's 307,758.[2] The area was 2,984 hectares.[3]

The population consists primarily of middle-income families living in single-family homes. It has been called "the green city district" due to its many recreational areas, among them Bulltofta field and Husie mosse and its proximity to the countryside. Husie is also home to the Jägersro derby track, a large stadium for horse racing that is famous for its annual derby. Husie has the highest life expectancy rate in Malmö and one of the highest in Sweden. Husie is the home to two football clubs Kvarnby IK and Husie IF.

History[edit]
