Police in Stockholm called in reinforcements after rioters set cars and a school ablaze in a fifth night of rioting, described as the worst in years.
About 30 cars have been torched and eight people, mostly aged in their early 20s, have been detained overnight.
Police said they needed to call in extra back-up from the cities of Malmo and Gothenburg.
The riots are mainly young people protesting over a growing divide between the rich and poor.
