Basically, the Swedish police maintains a list of child pornography sites in Sweden, and on a voluntary basis, the ISP's in Sweden block access to the sites. This week, PirateBay will be part of the list so almost every ISP in Sweden will block access to said site.
Since the news leaked, the swedish police website has not been reachable and is suspected to be under a DoS attack.
Furthermore, several sites in Sweden, most of them belonging to sport-clubs, have been hacked and the page replaced with the page you get if you are on the Swedish child pornography blocklist.
It should be noted that the people behind PirateBay hasn't argued against the child pornography claims (also, some links are to Swedish webpages, the links in the story are going via Systran for the English translation).
