They are basically facing 4 problems, ensuring long term cooling of the cores, ensure cooling of the spent fuel pools, prevent release of radioactive material and mitigate the consequences of the releases that will continue for a while. I want to speak a bit more about cooling in this blog post since it is the most crucial problem.
This is a blog by people very knowledgeable about nuclear power. It contains a somewhat day-to-day account of the events in Fukushima, as well as a lot of other info.

The decision means a maximum of 10 reactors in Sweden will be allowed, meaning old ones have to be shut down to start a new reactor. No government funds will be allowed to be used to subsidize any nuclear power endeavors.
However, the opposing parties have promised to reverse the decision if they gain power in the September election.
