She knew when to put the foot down and when to leave the room, even when to die! Yet too early, only 57 years old! She is probably became the best known of all members of the Swedish Academy. She was liked and admired and she will be missed by the common Swedish people. The family told media she died peacefully in her sleep the night to this Saturday. The cause of her death was breast cancer.
