I don't think you do, if that's what you thought it was ;-)

You have a (probably left-over) specification->package call but no 
"glibc-useful-swedish-utf8-locales"  package in Guix for it to find.  It does 
not search the environment.

Remove the spec and refer to your custom variable directly, e.g.:

  (packages (append (list glibc-useful-swedish-utf8-locales ...) ...))
