There are lots of runes found north of Gothenburg carved into rocks that come across more like graffitti by bored Viking teens. They are not organized into serpentine shapes and have a textual message. They are randomly spread over many rocks interspersed with primitive stick figures of humans, animals, boats, weapons, etc.
There are serpentine type runes in Sweden but they are not the majority of these rock carvings.
When ya look closely at Scandinavia Viking era ya find the Swedes went mainly to Baltic coast, down Russian rivers.
The Norse went to Ireland, Normandy, Spanish coast, Sicily.
The Danes went primarily to UK, Iceland, Greeland.
This may or not have been by arrangement, There are no chronicles of prolonged pitched battles 'tween the Vikings around 800-1000 AD. That picture changed after 1200s when all 3 went to war with each other primarily in the Baltic area.
When it comes to the 'serpentine' runes, the Danes + Norwegians whose spoken language resemble each other moreso than spoken Swedish had the predominance of them.
Another element to factor in is the group historically connected with serpents, viz, Tribe of Dan. What is more fascinating is that Tribe of Dan was predicted by Jacob to be the tribe that judged all the other tribes, they were the law makers, besides being trouble makers.
In The Talmud ya have a tradition of man-made law-ritual that is a law unto itself and departs radically from the Torah. Why else would the Soncino Version of Babylon Talmud contain 63 volumes, versus the thickness of Pentateuch found in OT.
This leads to another concept, namely the source of origin of the rune symbols themself. They are Hebraic, imparted on the Scandinavians by Tuathae Danae. Tribe of Dan.
Here's a bit of Swede trivia...
Before the 1520’s Sweden was a Roman Catholic country. But in the 1520’s with Martin Luther and the Reformation the Swedish king Gustav Vasa transformed Sweden into a protestant nation with a Lutheran Church and made him self, head of church.
The Swedish reformers were cautious. Much of the old order was retained unless judged to be superstition or false belief. At the parliament (riksdag) in Västerås in 1544, Sweden was proclaimed an evangelical kingdom. The king became the church’s most prominent member.
Sweden was a monolithic religious state, allowing only the Swedish version of the evangelical faith. It defined Sweden as an evangelical nation and required Swedes to confess the evangelical faith.
In the 1800’s, greater freedom of religion was allowed in Sweden, but not until 1951 was full religious freedom guaranteed everyone by law.
Up until 1996 it has been possible for children automatically to become members of the Church of Sweden at birth, provided that one of the parents was a member. Baptism was not required, although about 90 % of the children were baptized.
After 1995 baptism is the normal requirement for a person to become member of the Church of Sweden.
Sweden is divided into 13 Lutheran dioceses; each one headed by a bishop.
( the above reads more like a gulag manifesto, no?- what was not mentioned was that everybody was automagically registered in the Social Democrat Party at birth. To get out required a written petition)
