    Ferien auf Saltkrokan (German)

    Author:Astrid Lindgren
    Director:Olle Hellbom

    "Astrid ended up in the archipelago in Furusund when her in-laws bought a summer house, and this place became one of her favorite places to spend every summer as long as she was alive. She loved the archipelago and the summer idyll out there.”Saltkrokan” was originally the name of the Lindgren family's sailing boat, and later also the name of the television series that Olle Hellbom and Olle Nordemar had begged from Astrid. After thirty archipelago summers, Astrid thought she knew the area and the people enough to write about it. Saltkrokan was the only story she wrote directly for television. Maria Johansson, who plays Tjorven, was voted Sweden's Greatest Television Personality, Torsten Lilliecrona as Melcker Best Male Actor and the series Best TV Program of 1964."

    Astrid Lindgren in Norway

    The first to bring Astrid Lindgren's books abroad was the publisher Damm & Søn in Oslo, with their Norwegian edition of "Pippi Longstocking" already appearing in 1946. This marked the beginning of a long-standing relationship. Today, most of her books in Norway are published by Cappelen Damm, a publishing house formed through the merger of Cappelen and Damm. Astrid's book adaptations into films also became popular in Norway, as did her famous songs. One of Astrid Lindgren's favorite books was "Hunger" by the Norwegian author Knut Hamsun; she often mentioned it as one of her greatest reading experiences.
