And my fears are confirmed. The Right is not losing steam in nordic social democracies, but gaining it.

What is the ‘far-right’ like in Sweden. Are they like the MAGA nut-bags in the US or just ultra-conservative?

anti-immigrant, anti-muslim, anti-EU, and “formerly” fascist.

[Sweden Democrats] originally had its roots in Swedish fascism[24][25][26] and white nationalism,[27][28] but began distancing itself from its past during the late 1990s and early 2000s.[3][27] Under the leadership of Jimmie Åkesson, the SD underwent a process of reform by expelling hard-line members and moderating its platform. Today, the Sweden Democrats officially reject both fascism and Nazism.[3]

We have similar nutjobs in Finland in the “True Finns” party. Polls so far are not promising them much gains, with most gains going to the moderate conservatives (Kokoomus). Polls often make mistakes though.
