Wolves in Sweden

From an article in Rolling Stone about Stieg Larrson:

As a boy, Stieg lived in his grandparents' cottage in the woods. At the time, an old Swedish law was still in effect that barred children from attending school until they were seven. Written a century earlier, the law was intended to protect little boys and girls from being devoured by wolves while walking through the forest on the way to school.
Also, there was a serial killer in Sweden known as The Laser Man.
