‘Wanderer’ found dead near cabin

Bookmark and Share

A Norwegian man known for wandering from cabin to cabin in popular holiday areas, breaking into them and often vandalizing them as well, was found dead near an apparent target west of Gjøvik. Police couldn’t immediately determine his cause of death.

“I can confirm that it was Terje Larsen who was found dead near a hytte in Korperuddalen,” Per Solberg of the Inland Police District told newspaper VG earlier this week. He said Larsen was found with “minor injuries” and that he couldn’t say anything about a cause of death.

Larsen, age 60, was nicknamed as Vandreren (The Wanderer) because of his penchant for breaking into cabins known as “hytter,” staying in them for a while and even defecating on their floors as a sort of trademark. VG has earlier reported that he was convicted for a total of 664 such break-ins, mostly in Oppland and Buskerud counties.
