Language family: dialect of Swedish, even though this is grammatically untrue (see below)

Geographical use: in the very south of the Sweden, in a region called "Skåne" (Scania)

Information: Since Skåne was actually a Danish province until 1658, this dialect is quite significantly influenced by Danish. The absence of an established written Scanian language, i.e. Standard Scanian, has contributed to the fact that the Scanian language of today consists of many local dialects. Journals and books are published every year containing Scanian dialectal prose and poetry.

Skånska is generally considered to be a Swedish dialect. However, the language has never been Swedish and can therefore impossibly be a deviated from it. It has its own grammar and syntax that distinguish it from Danish and Swedish.
