"Skalperad" is listed as a cause of death. Can someone translate? Thank you.

It means literally scalped. Can it have happened in an accident? I read at a genealogy web site in Sweden about a man who got scalped when he fighted with a bear. It happened in the 1830's. He survived but the bear did not.
