breakaway screws/bolts
Explanation:
Right up until "om bulten inte går att lossa", I was pretty confident of my suggestion. But ordinarily, breakaway screws or bolts are intended to be broken off upon installation or upon an impact. I've not seen an application where the breakage occurs because the screw or bolt could not be loosened. So I've reduced my confidence level somewhat for this suggestion. reference links are for Google results for "breakaway screw' and "breakaway bolt" respectively.
