If $1 bought 11 SEK three months ago and buys you 10 SEK today the purchase cost of the SEK has risen when measured in dollars.

Indeed. But what the graph actually says, should you inspect the relevant axis, is that last month it cost € 0.11 to buy SEK 1, and now it costs € 0.10.

So € 1 used to buy SEK 9, and now it's buying SEK 10.
