Christer Merrill Aggett, 32, who has lived in the country since childhood, was also sentenced for six offences of underage sex.
The Solna District Court in November had found Aggett guilty of the charges, but ordered that he undergo psychiatric examination before sentencing.
Aggett was charged in October with two counts of aggravated assault for allegedly infecting two girls with whom he had sex without telling them he was HIV-positive.
He was also charged with aggravated assault, or "exposing others to danger", by having unprotected sex with more than a dozen other women between 2001 and 2006. They were not infected with HIV.
Six of them, however, were under the age of 15, the legal age of consent in Sweden, when the sexual encounters took place.
He had confessed to most of the charges, but not to having had sex with underage girls, saying he was unaware they were so young.
Police suspect Aggett had been in contact with at least 130 women he met via internet chat rooms.
