"I let it go down the hill and I am really, really happy with my skiing that run," said Shiffrin, who also triumphed in Saturdays giant slalom on the same course.
Shiffrin posted the third-fastest time in the final leg and beat Hansdotter once again, while Wendy Holdener was 1.87 behind in third for the Swiss skiers 13th career slalom podium without winning a World Cup record.
Petra Vlhova of Slovakia, the only skier to beat Shiffrin in a slalom this season, was 2.18 behind in fourth.
Only Annemarie Moser-Proell won more races (41) at that age, and Shiffrin can match the Austrian greats record at a night slalom in Flachau on Tuesday.
Kalle Palander could become Finland's first World Cup champion if he continues the run of form which led to his fourth successive slalom win in Shiga Kogen, though Saturday's victory was shared with Austrian Rainer Schoenfelder.
But last season's champion Ivica Kostelic, anxious to emulate little sister Janica who has already wrapped up the women's slalom title, is only 20 points behind Palander.
Janica Kostelic, still skiing despite a knee injury, has her name on the women's overall trophy as well, leaving only the speed events and the giant slalom to be decided in Lillehammer.

Further down the field, Austria's Renate Goetschl picked up valuable points by coming in tenth, helping her to close the gap in the overall standings on team mate Michaela Dorfmeister, who claimed her fourth giant slalom win of the season on Saturday.
Dorfmeister, who failed to qualify for the second leg of the slalom, is a former speed specialist who has stunned her rivals this season by dominating in the giant slalom.
