But why didn't the Germans invade Sweden?

When the war started, Sweden declared themselves neutral. Since the Napoleonic Wars, Sweden had generally done so, and never really got involved in the wars crisscrossing Europe. Germany did not invade Sweden because they didn't really need to. Sweden, as a neutral country, continued selling stuff to Germany- especially iron ore, which was very important for building weapons like tanks, airplanes, and warships. Without this iron ore, Germany probably could not have continued the war, so it was in Germany's best interest to leave Sweden alone.
