The Norwegian author Margit Sandemo has died
The renowned Norwegian author Margit Sandemo is dead at 94 years of age
The family writes in a press release that the popular love story author behind, among other titles, the epic series “Sagaen om Isfolket” (The Saga of the Ice People), died peacefully in her sleep, night to Saturday in her home in Skåne (Sweden).
They say it was her wish that there not be a funeral service or wake. Instead, an ash spreading ceremony will be held at the family cottage in Valdres. It is the same place where her husband’s ashes were spread 19 years ago.
The author’s publisher Bladkompaniet writes that her stories will always be in our hearts.
“We’re going to miss Margit very much. She was a beautiful person and a great source of inspiration for all of us. Her creativity, cheerful mood and great life shone through her books – something that the readers also noted. She put us all under her spell,” remembers the publisher.
