In Swedish, there is a difference between finne and finländare. All people of Finland are finländare, but finne refers to the Finnish-speaking population of the bilingual Finland whereas finlandssvensk refers to the Swedish-speaking minority who may often resent being called Finns.
It may be that the English sentence is not very intuitive, but there's an interesting Swedish distiction to be learnt from it.
