Michael, you are accusing Sweden of having "let German troops through to invade Norway". Do you think you could explain this... As far as I know this is complete news in the history of WW2. The invasion of Norway was a naval one, the troops were transported there by the Kriegsmarine (plus a small amount of paratroopers). That is not to say that Sweden didn't make (other) concessions to Germany in order to avoid being invaded. This is nothing to be proud of of course, but I don't think the politicians in charge had much options. Given the terrible state of the Swedish army it was either that or be invaded. After Weserübung Sweden was surrounded by German occupied or friendly nations and was entirely at the mercy of Germany. In that situation I think it was difficult not to make some concessions. Sweden did however also help the allies, training and equipping Norwegian and Danish partisans, monitoring German communications and saving many refugees (for example almost the entire Danish population of Jews).
