Yes, there are less religious people per capita than in almost any country in the world, in Sweden, in any case. I think Norway is more religious, though, and I am not at all sure about the other Nordic countries. As for Swe., this is totally ingrained in the culture, all the way back to the Norse. If anything, the old Norse system lives on in the lore, and in how Swedes (including myself) raise our kids. I have spent many, many hours thinking about this, because I raise my kids differently than people do here in Canada, and I wanted to know why, especially since I am putting myself though university by running a daycare (i.e. I work all day with kids, so I notice the difference). It's really very interesting when you really get inte it, and it is something that I have had to really study as part of the archaeology curriculum.
