A 58-year-old man from Romania turned himself in to police in Malmø, Sweden on Wednesday, saying he had killed a Norwegian flight attendant for Scandinavian Airlines (SAS) in Copenhagen the day before.

“He came in around 4:30pm and said he had taken the life of a woman in Denmark, and that he was the man being sought for the murder,” Calle Persson of the Malmø police told Norwegian Broadcasting (NRK).

He said the Romanian man was calm and well-dressed. He answers the description of the suspect Danish police had spotted on tape from surveillance cameras at the Radisson Hotel where Vera Vildmyren of Hadeland was found murdered in her room.

The man, identified as Marian Clita, also confessed to the robbery of another woman at a hotel in Malmø in February. Clita was convicted on murder charges in Romania in 1985, according to Danish police.

They believe Clita picked out Vildmyren as a random victim and that she probably opened the door to her hotel room when he knocked Monday evening. Her wallet and mobile telephone were missing when she was found dead by a hotel maid Tuesday morning.
