Police declined to confirm reports that the object was believed to be a hand grenade. The couple had been cycling past the device when the man stopped to investigate it. "This is totally unacceptable", Alvarsjo said.

"It is too early to say", Mr Olsson said. The woman suffered injuries to her face.

Police checked in and around the subway station after the blast to make sure there were no other explosive devices. The man and the woman simply "were at the wrong place and at the wrong time".

One person died and another was slightly hurt Sunday in a blast outside a metro station in a Stockholm suburb, which police said did not appear to be a terrorist attack.
