probably not. the adjective originates in an old north term for "frightened" (participe of "to frighten"). I didn't find the ethymology of the swedish verb, but of the norwegian "redde" and I'd be very surprised if the ethymology differed. anyway, the verb seems to be originated in the middle low german "redden" to save (compare with modern high german "retten"). there are a lot of loan words from middle low german in swedish wich makes it very easy for me as a german native speaker :-)
