I'd think the regular OCLC note would be adequate in this instance, since it IS, after all, a heading you found in OCLC:
670 OCLC, March 20, 2008$b(hdg.: Karlsson, Jens, 1972- ; usage: Jens Karlsson)
This isn't a "Swedish" heading, just because it comes from a Swedish language record-in my opinion it's a heading with equal status to any of the other name headings in OCLC.

Subject: citing a record in OCLC in another language of cataloging
I have been cataloging some books published in Sweden for which Swedish
libraries have already input records in OCLC. Since the language of
cataloging of these Swedish libraries is Swedish, OCLC policy is to have
us input a "parallel" record in English.
I'm wondering how best to cite a name heading found on one of these
non-English records, since often the headings found includes dates that
are not available otherwise and are used to break conflicts. For example,
Management of wolf and lynx conflicts with human interests / Jens
There is a record in Swedish (040 $b swe) for this book with the heading:
Karlsson, Jens, 1972- Per OCLC policy, I will be inputting a new parallel
record for this book and need to include the date in the heading to break
a conflict with another name in the authority file. I was thinking of
combining the info on the heading found in OCLC into one 670 citation:
Management of wolf and lynx conflicts with human interests, 2007: $b t.p.
(Jens Karlsson) Swedish OCLC bib. hdg. (Karlsson, Jens, 1972-)
Does this make sense? Is there a better way to include the information on
a heading found in OCLC for the same manifestation cataloged in a
different language of cataloging?
