The solution is probably along the lines of

   \def\shortcitation#1{%
     \nocite[#1]%
     \begingroup
     \getcitedata[kratko][#1] to \shorttitle
     \getcitedata[avtor][#1] to \shortauthor %define this bibfield first!
     \expanded{\footnote{\shortitle, \shortauthor ...}}%
     \endgroup}

More tomorrow, maybe. You have picked the worst possible time to ask
me about computer stuff. ;-)
