Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Not shown in the graph is the composition, but from the source we can see that construction falls dramatically with 1940 only having 14% of the construction of 1939.

Under which heading of the source is construction broken out? I don't doubt that it collapsed, but can't find the citation.

Mineral and Industrial Production (141-185) page 184 in the Yearbook, that is page 44 in the pdf. I relied most on Sveriges Industriförbund's (Swedish Industries organisation) breakdown as it both stretches further and is broken down in more useful cathegories. "Building" is furthest to the right.

Building : index based on the number of rooms in dwellings for which building permits were delivered, in eleven large towns.
