The Swedish Church page has a photo of the cathedral facade and its unusual twin-spired tower.

The English Wikipedia article about the building has a photo of the double-spired tower, and mentions the carillon.  The associated Wikimedia Commons category has many current and historical photos of the interior and exterior.

A Waymarking page has three rather distant photos of the building.
