English translation:What the hell happened to that phone no. to Gotland?
Explanation:
(Implicit: (.. that you/someone else was supposed to provide me with, find out...))

That's what it says. The writer is obviously curious as to the whereabouts of a particular phone number (I'm assuming it's a phone number, though the abbreviation "nr" can indicate any type of number. Judging by the style, the recipient should know what it's all about...

If it's not about a phone number, "nr" may be a typo.
