Södra Sofielund is a neighbourhood of Malmö, situated in the Borough of Södra Innerstaden, Malmö Municipality, Skåne County, Sweden. In 2015 Seved was reported by daily newspaper Sydsvenskan to be a socially deprived area where drugs are sold openly and heavy violence involving the use of hand grenades and assault rifles occurred.[2]

In the 2011–13 period, about 35% of the population originated outside the EU and the Nordic Countries.[3]

In its December 2015 report, Police in Sweden placed the district in the most severe category of urban areas with high crime rates.[4]
