Rakhmat Akilov, 39, from Uzbekistan, has admitted carrying out the Stockholm truck attack at a hearing in the capital.
Four people were killed and two critically injured when a lorry was driven into a department store on Friday 7 April.
Akilov’s lawyer Johan Eriksson, said: “His position is that he admits to a terrorist crime and accepts therefore that he will be detained.
A second man is no longer being held as a suspect, according to prosecution authorities, but he will not be released because he already had a
deportation order standing against him.
Investigations showed Akilov had been denied residency in Sweden and had expressed sympathy for so-called Islamic State (IS).
No group has claimed it was behind the attack.
