Sweden is an interesting case for sure.
Their confirmed infection rate is 50% higher than ours, their death rate per million is 400% higher than ours as well but they've largely kept their economy running.
I'm not sure if that makes it a better or worse approach? or at least the whole, people can be expected to do the right thing and social distance on their own.
Sweden is also a bit of a unique case in that they have the highest work from home workforce in the world and 40% of their households are single person dwellings. Its just a completely different culture than ours, its like they were built to self isolate better than the rest of us.
