    In order to build Odinism into a valid and inspiring religious expression we must overcome this tendency to trivialise divinity. The gods are not Vikings…they are spiritual beings, potent forces of numinous power"

    Interesting list.

    I would also include (for those closet Abba fans..... lol) Annifrid Lyngstad, or Frida as she was known. She was born in Narvik, Norway in 1945. Her birth was illegitimate, as her father was a German soldier who left the country before she was born.

    She and her family moved to Sweden because illegitimate children born to the German military weren't looked on favourbly at the time.

    Another noteworthy Norwegian (at least by descent) is Roald Dahl - author of such books as the Twits, Matilda, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory etc. He was born in Wales of Norwegian parents, and the family went to Norway frequently for holidays.

    A bit of trivia for the chocoholics out there! At his school in Repton, he became a taste-tester for Cadbury's. Every day, for the rest of his life, he ate a bar of Cadbury's, kept the foil - from which he made a huge foil ball. He added to the ball every day.
