Strike-off chart for letters used in play.
There's a good page dedicated to the Swedish version of Scrabble which was until very recently known as "Alfapet". Note that now that Mattel has taken over marketing of Scrabble in Sweden until the Scrabble name, Alfapet has brought out a replacement non-scrabble word game also called Alfapet.

Some late and confusing news: it looks like Spear's is continuing to market Scrabble in Sweden under the Alfapet name.

Although there is no on-line access to the official Swedish word list, SAOL, there is a supplement to the official dictionary and some useful collected wordlists (and a separate source of 3-letter words)
Here are the new words from SAOL11 to SAOL12. Links:
