Nothing specific to Teres-I laptop about that.

Problem is that you want a pipe key "|" reachable on a 102-key keyboard 
with a swedish layout.

Swedish layout is this: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/QWERTY#Swedish

Notice how "<" and ">" (on a 105-key US layout is right of "M", shifted) 
is left of "Z" on a key which is missing on 102-char keyboards.
