The Malmo District Court on Friday also ordered 40-year-old Peter Mangs to pay 1.2 million kronor ($180,000) in damages to survivors and their families.
The court found Mangs guilty already in July, but his sentence was delayed as the court awaited a psychiatric evaluation which ultimately found him to be sane.
Mangs was arrested in November 2010 after more than a dozen shootings that police had linked to a single gunman.
About 40 percent of Malmo's 300,000 residents are first- or second-generation immigrants.
It wasn't immediately clear whether Mangs would appeal.
