In abstentia?

I wonder why the prosecutors haven't gone the Swedish version of the Supreme Court to get a ruling. This case isn't the norm but it could be a precedent of commit a crime (alleged), seek asylum, and wait for the statute of limitations to run out. We've had cases here in the States where time has run out but the suspect wasn't in an embassy in asylum, either.
