Border of Sweden, Norway -- and Finland

How come Norway has most of Norrland in IB, when *here* the border between Sweden and Finland traditionally was at Ume river? The present border at Torne river was made by the tsar with a pencil on a map; because he wanted an easily defended border he in effect let Sweden keep a huge part of traditional Finland! How did this territory end up with Norway in IB? If we can't come up with any good explanation we should either return it to Finland, or Kvänland or Sweden, IMNSHO.
