I want to learn swedish since I speak german, so it should be easier for me to learn it (I want to learn finnish also, but not just yet). So my question is, is swedish spoken in Finland very different from the one spoken in Sweden? Is it ok if I take any book or online course or do I have to look specifically for "finnish" swedish?
I am aware of the percentage of the population that speaks swedish, I am just curious about the language.
Thanks for the help
Where to buy? Where can I find? How do I? Getting started.

The grammar is the same, the pronunciation is different, IMO very much akin to "rallye-English" (spoken similarly as if the words were read out loud in Finnish) vs. actual English. Actual Swedish is phonetically closer to Norwegian and Danish, which would be an asset if you're planning to learn, or interact with people speaking those.
