This has been extensively researched but one of the ABA pilots during the War. He co-authored the followoing book: "Blockade Runners: Sweden's Lifeline in the Second World War, by Lars-Axel Nilsson & Leif A Sandberg. Nilsson was the pilot, and after the war he became a SAS pilot and retired from SAS.

Copies of the book can still be found at used book sites/dealers.

I remember reading that also one mosquito serving in this role was shot down.

There is an excellent account of the BOAC and Swedish ABA flights between Scotland and Sweden during the war in the book "Blockade Runners; Sweden's Lifeline in the Second World War", by Lars-Axel Nilsson & Leif A. Sandberg. It is out of print but copies can be found on some used book sites.

I don't know how relevant this is, but here is a map over FuMG's and FluWa's around Oslo from a report sent by Höh. Kdo LXX AK in june 1942 regarding measures against allied flights.

It all sounds like a great background for a WWII cloak and dagger movie.
