I need help interpreting the handwriting in this Swedish death record from Ludvika parish: https://sok.riksarkivet.se/bildvisning/C0013173_00258

Petter Persson was killed in a mining accident on January 18, but how did it happen and in what mine? I got as far as "Ihjelslagen av ??? från en tunna i ??? grufvan" but I can't figure out the rest of the words. Can anyone else make it out?

I read "Ihjelslagen af en rulla från en Tunna" - but I don't see how that makes sense.

I read the mine as "Kopman-grufvan". This may be Köpmangruvan, which is mentioned here, aming the mines in the vicinity of Ludvika: "År 1827 sägs att malmen hämtats från följande gruvor: Ormgruvan, Bastberget, Ivike. Ikorrbotten, Dobbgruvan, Köpmansgruvan, Försöket, Håksberg, och Grängesberg" http://www.bygdeband.se/wp-content/uploads/uploaded/284/326748_mitt_l._sid.7.pdf - one of only two Google hits, cannot have been a big mine.

Maybe it rolled over him..?

Thank you for your help! The mine name matches other records, now that I know how to interpret it.
Do you have any idea where it is, more specifically?
I happened to be working on a space page for Grangärde parish with Ludvika and Grängesberg yesterday, looking for links to maps etc.

There's a lovely two-part map of the area in 1866-67 at Stockholm University: https://kartavdelningen.sub.su.se/kartrummet/W_haradskartor.htm

I'm curious for nostalgic reasons, having lived in the area from 1974 to 1983, doing quite a bit of "mine spotting".
I didn't know much about the area at all, but I do love old maps! I was looking into a family that married into mine and I ended up in Ludvika!
