This time, it involves prop overspeed on descent and approach; the Swedish air accident investigation branch (SHK) found that in a number of occasions in which this occurred (4 times in one acft!), on none of these occasions was the checklist correctly followed. The report criticised SK and Bombardier training, saying that the checklist itself was difficult to follow.
In one particularly serious incident, the aircraft was approaching Kalmar and became seriously destabilised, to the extent that the ATC officer alerted fire crews; a safe landing was made, but the approach was heavily criticised by the SHK.
The report made recommendations about the incident and the checklist, although since SK has now grounded its Dash 8, it's recommendations are academic for them, however SK has accepted that it was a serious incident.
