The saw was discovered close to the route taken by inventor Peter Madsen, who faces a murder charge over the death of the 30-year-old journalist.

Police from three different counties are now investigating if Peter Madsen, the Danish inventor suspected of murdering journalist Kim Wall, has been involved in other killings.

The saw was found in Koge Bay, south of Copenhagen, the same place where Miss Wall's headless torso was found 11 days after her August 10 disappearance, and where divers recovered her head and legs in plastic bags on October 6.

Ms Wall was last seen as she sailed with inventor Peter Madsen in his homemade submarine in waters off Copenhagen.

Madsen has been detained and charged with killing the Swede.

"The saw is now being examined by our forensic technicians to determine whether it is the saw police have been looking for in connection with the submarine case", Copenhagen police inspector Jens Moller Jensen said in a statement.

Investigators believe Madsen killed Wall between August 10 and 11, cut up her body and attached a belt with a pipe to the torso so it would sink.

Investigator Jens Moeller Jensen told The Associated Press that Madsen "doesn't want to talk now".

About two months after alleged killing of Swedish journalist Kim Wall, her severed head has been found.

He has plead not guilty and announced through his lawyer that he was refusing to answer any new police questions about the case, according to The Local Sweden.

Police also found some of Miss Wall's clothes and a knife in one of the bags.

The charge sheet alleges Madsen cut Wall's body into pieces, punctured her torso and tied pipes to it to make it sink to the bottom of the sea, CNN reported.

Detectives later found videos on Madsen's personal computer of women being tortured, decapitated and murdered.

Madsen has refused to cooperate with investigators since the head and legs were found, prosecutor Jakob Buch-Jepsen said on Wednesday.

The arms are considered particularly important for clarification of case, because y may be able to see if Kim Wall defended herself from her death.
