There is lots of information about glass fusing available on the internet. You may want to start with the "Warm Glass" website. They have a "Warm Glass Tutorial" that introduces fusing, slumping, and other kiln glass processes: http://www.warmglass.com/basic.htm 

On the same site, you can view a gallery of fused glass objects or participate in a forum of questions and answers. There is a "Newcomer Forum" for people who have never done fusing or slumping. You may wish to ask where you can find articles about fusing in Swedish. 

Also, take a look at their "links and resources." There is a great deal of information available to explore there. 

Another newer site is Fusenews: http://www.fusenews.net. They offer "articles, artist profiles, fusing tips, firing charts, projects and more." 

Glass and kiln dealers often provide tutorials as well. 

The Bullseye Glass site, for example, has excellent "Technotes" and "Tipsheets" section. You can download extensive instructions:

System 96 also has "Technical Information" and "Learning Resource" sections: http://www.system96.com/ 

Explore other suppliers' (or retailers) websites - they often have videos and demonstrations to help you learn about kilnworking. The Warm Glass and Fuse News websites have long lists of suppliers to help you get started. 

I also attached a basic list of books about kilnworking.
