Kåre Holt

Kåre Holt (born October 10, 1916 in Våle in Vestfold, died March 15, 1997) was a Norwegian author.

His initial work was published in 1939, a children’s book named "Tore Kramkar". As his career progressed, Holt wrote many children’s books, plays, radio plays, biographies, and historical novels. The trilogy "Kongen" about King Sverre Sigurdsson ["Sverre Sigurdsson" (old Norse "Sverrir Sigurðarson") (c. 1145/1151 – 9 March 1202) was king of Norway from 1184 to 1202.] is considered his principle work. He is also remembered for his mytholigically-based novels about icons of Norwegian history, among others "Kappløpet" about Roald Amundsen which created a sensation when it was published in 1974.

Holt won The Norwegian Critics Prize for Literature 1954, for "Mennesker ved en grense". Holt was nominated three times for the The Nordic Council's Literature Prize (‘’Nordisk Råds litteraturpris’’): in 1966 for the novel "Kongen—Mannen fra utskjæret", in 1970 for the novel "Kongen—Hersker og trell" and in 1979 for the novel "Sønn av jord og himmel".
