I compared Covid-19 data on the 17th of October 2020, using this source: https://coronavirus.jhu.edu/map.html

UK population = 66650000 
Uk cases = 708297 
UK deaths = 43669
66650000 / 708297 = 1 positive on each 94 people
66650000 / 43669 = 1 death on each 1526 people

Sweden population = 10230000
Sweden cases = 103200
Sweden deaths = 5918
10230000 / 103200 = 1 positive on each 99 people
10230000 / 5918 = 1 death on each 1728 people

Conclusion: there are fewer cases and fewer deaths in Sweden, although they didn't do any lockdown and they didn't impose any restrictions.

Is there any explanation for this?

    You might want to investigate how dense the population of the UK is compared to Sweden. Sweden is basically one big city surrounded by huge sparsely populated rural areas.
