He died at his home in Stockholm, but the cause and date of his death were not revealed.
"Rutger was most known for his long and close collaboration with Björn Ulvaeus, Benny Andersson and ABBA, having worked on all their albums, singles, tours, films and musicals," Universal said in a statement.
Bass fans are particularly fond of his contributions to hits like "Dancing Queen", "Knowing Me Knowing You" and "Money, Money, Money".
The four members of ABBA, Anni-Frid Lyngstad, 69, Agnetha Fältskog, 65, Ulvaeus, 70, Andersson, 68, have not played music together since 1986.
