"That is rape according to British law."

Indeed, and note that the UK will only allow extradition if the accusation is also a crime under UK law, and that the receiving country (Sweden) is not allowed to bring additional charges unless approved by the UK.

There wouldn't be a case if the accusation was not considered a crime under UK law.
