That is actually incorrect. I just read the newest Tiede magazine that Christianity was spread to Finland by vikings from _east_ (yes, there were some vikings in Russia too). The convertion was pretty peaceful.
Reasearchers believe that Lalli was actually a Christian. Swedish crown sent holy men because Finland was not really part of Sweden yet. After the "crusades". Sweden claimed Finland as its land.
