What's the matter with Sweden? Social model put to test as far-right surges

Now it's Sweden's turn: a European nation with a balance of power disrupted by the rise of far-right populists. The Sweden Democrats - a neo-Nazi-rooted formation - has rebranded itself and is expected to pick off votes from the centre-left and centre-right in Sunday's general election. There's blowback in the nation that per capita took in the most refugees in 2015. What will be the decider when the ballots are counted on Sunday night?

Produced by Charles WENTE, Alessandro XENOS, Van MEGUERDITCHIAN.
