If you arrest Wuunferth without having given the amulet to Calixto it breaks the quest.

No, above post is wrong. Arresting Wuunferth is another way to proceed through the quest but it takes longer. Go outside and come back to Windhelm a week or so later, then go to the cemetery. A guard should approcach you and tell you the killer is still out there, thus reactivating the quest from your journal. If you don't get that sequence, maybe your game is broken or you have not waited long enough

im still stuck on the part where you search the crime scene :/

There's not actually any "result" from searching the crime scene, you're meant to look for splashes of blood on the ground and follow them to see where they go. And not think too much about how they got there seeing as afaik Susanna was killed where she was found.

It only works if you gave the amulet to Calixto, and after the arrest you can't do that anymore.

Quest will proceed in three days. If not, then player character can visit Wuunferth in prison barraks and talk to him to proceed with the quest.

Well, i'm on the second part on the quest waiting to catch the butcherer, which means that I can't use console commands to cancle the second part and move back to the first part. The only way to "cancel" is to complete the quest thus leaving Wuunferth in jail.

Have you patrolled outside only during nights?

Patrolling the area at night is usually pointless, altough this is indeed what you were told to do. I just park my character at the marketplace during daytime and use wait, until I see certain character(s) appearing.

If you follow the folk visiting the market area, then you will notice who is clearly out of place. He will act - in open - when his target arrives.
