If someone would please help me make sense of Bohuslän runes. The only information I can find seems flawed and if anything, confusing (regarding some of the latter runes).

This appears to be one of the medieval rows. During the Middle Ages a number of rows were devised that were based more-or-less on “real” staves (usually the 15+1 stave Standard Nordic Fuþork) which were expanded to cover distinct phonetic values in an attempt to “prove” that Scandinavians were just as civilized, educated and modern as their Roman counterparts. Perhaps the most wll-known of these systems was King Vladamir's Runes. Few of these systems took hold outside certain circles, which is why they seem so obscure today.
