Personally, I use this for SWEREF99 TM:
"+proj=tmerc " // Projection
"+ellps=GRS80 " // Spheroid
"+k=0.9996 " // Scale factor at central meridian
"+x_0=500000 " // False easting
"+y_0=0 " // False northing
"+lon_0=15.0 " // Longitude of central meridian
"+lat_0=0.0 " // Latitude of origin
"+towgs84=0,0,0,0,0,0,0 " // Datum
This results in near perfect matches with the reference data published
by the Swedish Survey Authority. See
See http://www.lantmateriet.se/templates/LMV_Page.aspx?id=4219 for a
general description - sorry it is in Swedish, I thought there was an
English version before but do not see it now.
