I don't know about Sweden, but you definitely DON'T need a visa if you're a 
UK citizen; there's a list of countries eligible for the "visa waiver 
program", under which you just sign a declaration that you are not a Nazi war

don't have the list of countries eligible, but I'd imagine Sweden will be on 
it too...
