A woman has admitted stealing a man's wallet and taking nearly 900,000 kronor ($129,000) from his bank account.

The woman stole the man's wallet in December. She then succeeded in taking out money from his account on around 40 occasions. She forged his signature on documents and used his driving licence as ID.

The woman, on trial at Uddevalla District Court, has admitted fraud and forgery, according to Swedish Radio.
