57-year-old Marianne Amundsen, a department head at the NAV, was killed in the knife attack at a NAV office in Bergen last week. Colleagues describe her as “caring” and “skilled.”

“The bereaved feel deep sadness, despair, and anger after losing their much-loved mother, daughter, and sister, Marianne Amundsen,” the family wrote in a press release.

“The bereaved need peace and space to mourn and ask others to respect that,” the family added.

Director of NAV Vestland, Anne Kverneland Bogsnes, told the newspaper VG that Amundsen’s colleagues describe the deceased as a very good person.

Caring and skilled

“They describe her as caring and skilled and good in every way,” Bogsnes said.

29-year-old Ida Aulin was also injured in the attack.

“She has now been discharged from the hospital but is strongly affected by the injuries and the incident,” lawyer May Britt Løvik stated in a press release.

A man in his 30s has been remanded in custody and charged with murder and inflicting grievous bodily harm after the knife attack on Monday last week.
