Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
In swedish law children has the right to (at least) 50% of the inheritance, divided equally. For example, if you are one of four children you have the right to at least 12.5%, while if you have only one sibling, 25% will be yours for sure.

Surviving spouse has the right to "unmoved living" (orört bo), which puts a lower limit on how little she (or he, though it is more common that men die first) can be left with. The rest will then be inherited upon the surviving spouses death.

It gets really complicated when you have children who share only one parent.
