Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
The position (real, not official) of Swedish police and prosecutors when it comes to murder threats online is that you can't investigate because the suspects might admit it (article in Swedish) and then they would have to go to trial. Which costs money.

Essentially the government has given up enforcing laws regarding slander, threats and hate speach online. They casually blame it on american corporations, but in reality it is just not a priority.

The police task force for online crimes are busy catching villains who watch movies without paying for it.
