"Sorry" in Swedish?

The only way I know of to say "sorry" in Swedish is "Jag är ledsen," and I was just wondering if there was another, possibly shorter way, such as just saying "Sorry" in English as opposed to "I am sorry".

    Yes, you can say "Förlåt". However, for smaller things a lot of people actually say "sorry". Especially younger people.

    "Förlåt (mig)" = "Forgive me".
    "Ursäkta (mig)" = "excuse me".

    "Förlåt" sounds like "flåt" when pronounced quickly.
