Norwegian employee at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and suspected spy who studied medicine at the University of Oslo from 1932 to 1933, but gave up her studies and became a nurse instead. She worked at different hospitals and spent the war years at a hospital in Bodø, where she picked up Russian and fell in love with a Russian prisoner-of-war, Vladimir Koslov. Consequently, in 1946, the foreign ministry hired her as an interpreter.

In 1947, she was assigned to the Norwegian embassy in Moscow and was soon recruited by the KGB. She maintained an intimate affair with Koslov for two years and committed to spying on behalf of the Soviet Union after the KGB threatened to deport him to Siberia. In 1955, she returned to Oslo but continued her espionage activities through a Soviet handler.

She was arrested on 27 January 1977 after she had been betrayed by Oleg Gordievsky. She was charged with espionage on behalf of the Soviet Union and treason. She allegedly confessed to the crimes but died under mysterious circumstances in prison on 5 December 1977 before the case could come to trial.
