Yes. If for no other reason then because the prosecutor has to show up in court and present the police's case for why they want to continue to detain the suspect(s) beyond N hours (with N being 6 in Sweden to 24 in Denmark). I gather that Swedish prosecutors also function as the formal head of investigations, but I'm unclear as to the details.

I'm not sure, but I think N is 72 hours in Finland - depending on the seriousness of the potential charge measured by the maximum length of potential imprisonment.
