Yes, a pun. It can mean "a Swedish tiger" or "A Swede keeps their mouth shut." Tiger = tiger or to stay silent (infinitiv: tiga) (compare Italian tacere).

Many thanks ! I was wondering what the meaning is of this sentence, because where in Sweden one could find a tiger ?? But this is very interesting !
