Interesting concept, though the Wikipedia article itself seems to indicate this system has its flaws:

"In Sweden, even with the existence of the Enforcement Authority, it is still considered complicated, so most companies use debt collection companies for the process anyway, similar to in other countries."

Huh? I mean, if you don't pay a bill, it'll usually go to a private company trying to collect it at first. But they simply send out another bill with an additional charge added. After a few attempts they will in turn hand it over to the Enforcement Authority. I've never heard of anyone using anything but the Enforcement Authority as a last resort to claim a debt.
