The report have not yet been officially published and the investigation is
still listed as ongoing: http://www.havkom.se/utredningarlist.asp?category=MILI

It will be available at http://www.havkom.se/ once released. If I remember it correctly,
the full report is expected to be finished/released early next year.

If this is the case, who's fault is it ? The system, the crew or a combination ?

I would suggest controlled flight into terrain is the crews fault.

But should'nt the system come with an indication of terrain, despite the fact that it's put on landing configuration ?

Just asking. Don't know how these things work ...
