Police say a 21-year old held on suspicion of killing a woman on a train platform has made "certain admissions" and this strengthens the case against him.

"We have made a breakthrough and are in a new phase of the investigation," says spokesman Peder Jonsson.

On a Saturday in late July witnesses reported a young injured woman calling for help on Umeå station platform. She later died in hospital.

Police say they have also found a weapon that can be linked to the current suspect. The other young men formerly under investigation are now completely free from suspicion, say police.

The prosecutor will now look to get the suspect held in custody even longer.
