*Links:

The cathedral Website has a partial photo of the tower in the page headings.  But these bells do not seem to be mentioned anywhere.

The Swedish Church page has a photo of the building and mentions the bells, giving the number as 36 rather than 37.

A city tourist page (in English) has a photo and small paragraph about the cathedral; click "Images" below the paragraph for more photos (three showing the bell tower).
