The Eastern North sea rift hooks around into the Oslo Graben NW. of this location but the track of the Oslo graben itself is hard to see as it is buried under moraine.
This one shows up a part of the old Oslo graben so it is interesting to see.
The magnitude is nothing special (specialty involves events of 5.0 or higher), so an item of curiosity only.
Papers from Sweden indicate that the last major isostatic events occurred ~6000Bp and nowadays results are minor adjustments, variances in stress from alpine backrange convergence (S. Europe), and caucasus convergence (S.Ctr Eurasia), and occasional "rubble pile" quakes in the upper 10Km of loose jointed rock.
This one appears to be minor adjustment event related to Oslo Graben.
