I believe it is an orthoceras.

You can find some info about Kinekulle on this site LINK.

About the orthoceras you will find some examples here: LINK

Yup, like I said in the mail it's an Orthoceras, or as it's also called in English, and Orthocone.
Probably from either the upper Cambrian or Lower Ordovician period, which is roughly 488 million years ago.

And the reason it's so shiny is because it's polished.
