Order of *hon* and *han*

I've noticed that in all the examples with pronouns for both sexes, the pronouns for female come first. Is that the normal order in Swedish?

You can do it in what order you like. It's irrelevant and there's no rule or anything.


I don't get what you mean. I've never heard of pronouns being in an order?


Okay. Traditionally in English, one would say "him and her" not "her and him", but that's almost archaic now. I've noticed that it's always "henne och honom" and the like in the examples here and didn't know if there were such a thing as a normal ordering in Swedish.
