They just tried to buy some time for the Tampere arena project by splitting the 12&13 WHCs between Finland and Sweden. Tampere, with its shiny new arena(aka Kummola's Mausoleum), was supposed to be the Finnish host city of the 2013 tournament.

...but I don't think it's a big deal. The distance between Bratislava and Kosice - the host cities of the 2011 tournament - is about 300km and the distance between Helsinki and Stockholm is 400km.
