He says a woman with the man received minor wounds to her face and both legs from the blast.

"According to information, the injured man picked up an object from the ground", confirmed a police spokesman. The couple had been cycling past the device when the man stopped to investigate it.

Numerous illegal hand grenades found in Sweden are being imported from former Yugoslav nations, he said. "This is totally unacceptable", Alvarsjo said.

Daily newspaper Aftonbladet said it was thought to have been a hand grenade. "It is surprising they have not detonated earlier", Alvarsjo said.

Police checked in and around the subway station after the blast to make sure there were no other explosive devices.

The area where the explosion took place was cordoned off while investigators scoured the scene around the Varby Gard station, Efe quoted police as saying. "But we will have to wait for the technical investigation", the spokesman said, adding that a murder investigation had been launched.
