The first bomb (blew up a car) took place shortly before the second one; it’s unclear whether the second explosion was a suicide vest gone blessedly right (i.e., it was a suicide vest, not a homicide one) or whether the would-be jihadi screwed up placing a charge.
It’s reported that Swedish media received the usual crowing-about-murdering-for-Shaitan** garbage that accompanies this sort of thing; the ostensible reason for their attack was supposedly Sweden’s 500 troop presence in Afghanistan.

“Our acts will speak for themselves,” TT quoted the message as saying. “Now your children, your daughters and your sisters will die as our brothers, our sisters and our children are dying.”
*Ruthlessly stolen from Charlie Stross: in case it isn’t obvious, it means ‘to accidentally improve the human race’s average intelligence via your sudden departure from this plane of existence.’
