The swedish model is working in that:
a. Hospitals are not getting overwhelmed.
b. The curve is flattening.
On the other hand the disease has made its way into a large number of elderly homes, and that leads to a lot of casualties
Note though that one reason why swedish numbers are high is because all deaths that could be due to covid19 are reported as such. AFAIK only Sweden, Belgium and France are following this method of reporting, so we won't see the true numbers of the corona edidemic until you see the world surplus mortality, and those statistics aren't going to be fully collected and compared until 2021-2022.
