Do you get deported for overstaying a Schengen visa in Sweden?

Deportations for overstaying a Schengen visa is incredibly rare. Nobody is coming after you. When you leave the Schengen region there is a good chance that you are going to be taken aside, given some forms to sign, and then be banned from re-entering this part of Europe for a few years. The entire process is pretty straight forward, formal, and matter of fact.

Stop worrying, you are free to do whatever you want until leaving. Typically, even if the police do find that you are there illegally, you will just be requested to leave on your own rather than being deported.
