A City Hall page (in English) has a photo of the tower and belfry.  Another page (in English) has a photo of the building from across the harbor.  But the bells are not mentioned.

The Swedish Wikipedia article about the city has a night photo of the top of the tower, in which some of the bells are clearly visible.
A section about the bells includes a photo from directly below.  The transmission wires for the drop-hammers, which travel from the weight-driven operating mechanism through two of the corner posts of the open belfry, are clearly visible.

Where this work lies in the sequence of output of unidentified bellfoundries, in this region and in the world.
