Re: Good for him… maybe?

It does sound very much like Sweden is preparing the ground for a "hey guys - not our problem any more" statement. It would be extremely easy to revert to the original decision of the other prosecutor.

What this would mean for the extradition is unclear though - if the reason for the extradition is retrospectively done away with, is the extradition itself is no longer valid (or considered never valid)?

Probably not, but it could easily be enough for the (future Labour?) government to justify washing their hands of it all and telling him to bugger off to Ecuador.
