Is Bob Dylan ignoring the Nobel Prize?

The notification on about the Nobel Literature Prize has disappeared.
More than one week after the announcement of the prestigeous award, Bob Dylan has still neither accepted or declined. A few days after the announcement it was in fact mentioned (very briefly) on, but that note has now disappeared.
So the question is: Will he show up in Stockholm on December 10 to achieve the Nobel Literature Prize?
So far the answer seems to be blowin' in the wind.

Swedish newspaper Aftonbladet.

The debate about this years laureate has been intense. First: was is the right to give the award to Bob Dylan, a musician/writer of rock poetry? Then: why does he not respond?
