It seems collating is right. Googling some sources I find:

% The letter w is normally not present in the Swedish alphabet. It
% exists in some names in Swedish and foreign words, but is accounted
% for as a variant of 'v'.  Words and names with 'w' are in Swedish
% ordered alphabetically among the words and names with 'v'. If two
% words or names are only to be distinguished by 'v' or % 'w', 'v' is
% placed before 'w'.

So the only fix is using LC_ALL=C before awk script.
