On this photo we can see a relative long pv on the hindtibia.
There are 5 species with a pv seta above middle of the hindtibia.
A. borealis, billbergi, denticauda, silvestris and teriolensis.
All species except A. borealis are present in Sweden.
Looking at the visible characteristics I agree with Alliopsis silvestris.

In your other thread, we can't see the pv on t3, but I think it also is A. silvestris female
