Margareta Krook’s Statue

Margareta Krook is a well-known actress in Sweden, perhaps the country’s most well known. She played in dozens of films from the 1950s until her death in 2002 and also acted on stage many times.

During her life, Krook was approached with numerous proposals for statues to be built in her honor, but declined them all, stating that statues are cold and uninviting. However, after her death, the theater wanted a statue but they did not want to go against her wishes. The theater found a loophole that technically allowed for a statue and was in line with Margareta’s wishes: a heated statue.
