Looks like the Swedish government is being threathened by the European Commission on its restrictions of purchasing alcohol. Systembolaget is what the state-owned company is called that is the only place in Sweden where you can buy strong drinks.

"Stockholm has two months to reply to the Commission otherwise it may be called before the European Court of Justice. "

It's mostly a matter of where taxes are being paid and to whom. Not so much as to selling vodka in foodshops.
