Because there was nothing to gain by invading Sweden and much to loose if doing so. Sweden was a major source for iron ore for Germany and via neutral Sweden, Germany could exported other materials from countries which didn't have any relation with it including the allies countries.

I always thought that Sweden had a lot of aluminum which helped Germany in producing airplanes..., anything that was light and would enable it to travel fast.
