The house was empty at the time of the explosion and nobody was hurt.
"It is not a pretty sight," said Thord Haraldsson of Gothenburg Police to Göteborgs-Posten.
The noise of the explosion could be heard throughout large parts of the town.
"People heard a loud bang and soon we found ourselves outside the house," said police spokesperson Björn Blixter.
"The prosecutor works against a certain type of crime, so it is not by chance that this explosion was directed at her," said Blixter.
One case currently being worked on by the prosecutor involves a shooting in which several members the Brödraskapet Wolfpack criminal network are suspects. Last year she also indicted on assault charges a 27-year old man identified as the president of a local division of the Bandidos biker gang.
Forensic experts are now on their way from Gothenburg to begin an investigation.
