Just wanted to add a note about the 'extra' characters in Swedish and 
their order.

Swedish has all the character known from English + 3 extra: 
lowercase       å ä ö 
Uppercase: Å Ä Ö

(The first one should have a ring, or small 'o' above the 'a', if it 
just looks like dot).

These are not in any way associated with a or o and doesn't come in the 
same place when sorting. Although they are vowels.

The sorting order in Swedish is:

        A B C   .. Z Å Ä Ö
        a b c   .. z å ä ö

Now you know the Swedish letters and their sorting order :)
