Description
Astrid Anna Emilia Lindgren (born Ericsson 14 November 1907 – 28 January 2002) was a Swedish writer of fiction and screenplays. She is best known for children's book series featuring Pippi Longstocking, Emil i Lönneberga, Karlsson-on-the-Roof, and the Six Bullerby Children (Children of Noisy Village in the US), as well as the children's fantasy novels Mio min Mio, Ronia the Robber's Daughter, and The Brothers Lionheart.



As of May 2013, she is the world's 18th most translated author[1] and the third most-translated children's writer after H. C. Andersen and the Brothers Grimm. Lindgren has sold roughly 144 million books worldwide.



Astrid Lindgren died on 28 January 2002 at the age of 94, in her home in central Stockholm. Her funeral took place in the Storkyrkan (Great Church) in Gamla stan. Among the guests attending were King Carl XVI Gustaf with Queen Silvia and others of the royal family, and Prime Minister Göran Persson. The ceremony was described as "the closest you can get to a state funeral"
