Three men, two from Estonia, and one woman, are suspected to be behind a prostitution network involving girls from Estonia who were under 18 years of age.
"This mainly revolves around a criminal organisation in Estonia that has been branching out to Sweden looking for its clients here", said Anna Lena Nilemar at the court.
The suspected policeman belonged to a "special force" that was supposed to investigate how the organisation had made use of the Internet to set up its business.
One of the Estonian women identified the policeman on a picture showed to her, claiming he was "like any other paying customer", said Aftonbladet.
Under interrogation the police officer said he used the brothel's services "out of pure curiosity".
