Yes, the Forbes article also notes that Sweden has much higher numbers than its neighboring countries. But even so, it is better off than the UK and Spain and Italy.

I judge 'almost done' by the daily death curve tailing off to just a couple a day nationwide, and the new cases curve has taken a sharp nosedive after gradually declining for a while.

Yes there is always the possibility of a second wave, but it seems that (a) Sweden's non-lockdown policy was even more liberal (not in the political sense) than the U.S., but (b) somehow it's 'working' for them (their daily cases/deaths curves are approaching 0), and what we're doing is not working for us.
