That magnitude quakes are not uncommon around Scandinavia. Caused be post-glacial rebound I guess, as this was very near to surface. Earthquakes here can be felt far away, as rock here is very solid, not fractured like areas with stronger earthquakes. We had magnitude 3.? earthquake, near coast of Sweden in 2010. It was felt over 150 kilometers from epicenter, even though it was very weak. It was also first earthquake I have felt.
