Abstract. The article analyses results of Swedish parliamentary elections in September 2010. The author regards them as another manifestation of the fact that Sweden is losing peculiarity of its social development model. This is a result of the end of an era of two-block party structure of the Riksdag (left and right centers) and of the domination of Social Democrats in the political life of the country. The new third political force – the party of Swedish Democrats which strongly opposes the other culture immigration – is detail regarded.

Keywords: Sweden, elections, Social Democrats, centrist coalition, Swedish Democrats, immigrants, refugees, ethno-social issues, Mona Sahlin, Fredrik Reinfeldt, Jimmi Åkesson
