Three attacks of strength 2, two into Sweden and one out. All bounce. Even if any one support is cut, they all will bounce as the other two stand off and the attack whose support is cut also bounces.
Just to be sure I'm clear, the only correct adjudication of the above orders, assuming no effect by other forces, is that all units bounce.
