The article on Vättern says that its deepest point is at least 136 m, but it's not on the "Deepest" list. Is there an explanation for this, or is it a mistake? / Alarm 18:11, 31 August 2005 (UTC)

My source for this article comes from a pdf file which seemed official. I saved it to my hard drive and have no uploaded it on http://www.stoisk.se/Documents/Fiskar.pdf . The pdf lists the "deepest" lakes without Vättern. A quick search on google gives this page: http://aktuellt.fiskeriverket.se/sottochsalt/file/Utgavor_pdf/nr%204_webb.pdf which on page three gives Vättern a deepest depth of 120 meters. It may also be mentioned that I have removed from the page Vättern the (to me) another flawed description, namely of Vättern containing more water than Vänern [1], which according to the first link I provided above is clearly debunct. // Fred-Chess 20:56, August 31, 2005 (UTC)
Ok, then it seems as if it is the Vättern article that needs to be changed. The pdf could possibly be referred to as a source in the article. / Alarm 21:52, 31 August 2005 (UTC)
It has been done. The pdf can't be uploaded to wikipedia as it isn't free, and I don't remember where I got it from anymore, but I've added the above link to the article. Fred-Chess 22:06, August 31, 2005 (UTC)

Area[edit]

According to Statistisk Årsbok 2012 by Statistiska Centralbyrån and to Sveriges sjöar by Sveriges Meteorologiska och Hydrologiska Institut (who uses figures of Sveriges Nationalatlas -The National Atlas of Sweden - gathered from Lantmäteriet - the National Survey), i.e. what must be considered the most official figures, the ten largest lakes in Sweden are (in km2):

Vänern 5519
Vättern 1886
Mälaren 1090
Hjälmaren 477
Storsjön 456
Torneträsk 330
Siljan 292
Hornavan 262
Akkajaure 260
Uddjaure 249

Bolmen is 12th on this list (after Storavan 184) with 173. --Episcophagus (talk) 18:00, 17 July 2012 (UTC)
