OP you are lucky it did not arc and make a big black mess. Those Rifa safety capacitors crack and short out with age, causing equipment damage and bonfires. Never use them, I don't know why Kemet keeps selling the PME271 series etc. The paper insulation inside is unique but nothing special.

Replace it with any other safety cap that fits.

why sweden?
you can get good panasonic replacements from RS in the u.k.

postage/handling wont be fun though.
CPC has lower minimum order rules - maybe cpc has some.

I'm partial to them since they were actually manufactured in Sweden in the past
I would do as redwire said: replace with any safety agency approved X2 capacitor.
The link was more because you asked what they are

Is it an X capacitor or a Y capacitor. IIRC, Rifa made a .022uF Y capacitor in the PME271 series.
