LANG provides the default for all LC_* variables which are
not set, and LC_ALL overrides anything else.

In your case, I think it's best to only set LC_MONETARY and
LC_CTYPE to "sv_SE.ISO8859-15".  LANG need not be set (but
can be set to "C", for example), and LC_ALL must _not_ be
set, because it would override all others.

BTW, the variables are listed in the setlocale(3) manpage.
