Astrid Lindgren, the world famous author of children´s books and stories for all people, died in 2002. Her funeral was shown at Swedish television and the cathedral of Stockholm was over filled with people wanting to say their last goodbye to a very beloved story teller and a person that also became the sound mind of all Swedes.
