What does "5:a" mean? Could it mean a 5-kronor bill?
"En kille tappar en 5:a"
Yes, your assumption is correct. The normal way of writing it, though, is femma, in letters only.
Nowadays we don't have a five-kronor bill, it's been replaced by a coin. I still refer to the coin as femma, although it would be more correct to call the coin femkrona. However, people are lazy: why use three syllables when two are enough?
Separate names with a comma.
