Is it illegal to do otherwise?

i have noticed that in the UK, if a criminal, terrorist, pedophile, rapist, burglar etc is sentenced, their name is mentioned and often a photo is included. this doesn't seem to happen in Sweden. is it illegal or something? also when they're searching a criminal in Sweden, the authorities never give a full description of who theyre looking for. weird huh?
