I've been to Jokkmokk, but I didn't see a laundromat there. I
would be surprised if it was something there that can be
considered as a laundromat. The laundromat culture does not exist
in Sweden mainly as a result of the tradition with a free laundry
in the basement of all apartment houses.

Maybe it's a dry‑cleaner's?

Jokkmokk's greatest attraction though, is to count all the dead
reindeers on the road to Kiruna. I counted 22.

Being a tourist from Stockholm (1000 km south) I stopped or at
least slowed down for the reindeers, but the locals don't... Only
the Lapps do.
