I have one Swedish/Finnish C128 and one Swedish/Finnish C128DCR.
Unfortunately, the Swedish keyboard layout in both C128 and C64 mode (they
differ somewhat) are missing a couple of graphical characters, which can't
be entered (fortunately, in C128 mode, the keyboard layout is switched back
to the original American by the ASCII/CC key (which is the same as the CAPS
LOCK key, so the CAPS LOCK function is not available), which also switches
between the original American C64/C128 and the Swedish C64/C128 character
set (in my C128, there is an extra wire from the keyboard controller to the
character generator, in the C128DCR, it's supported by the board via a
jumper setting).
