Hi Clark,In Norwegian, I believe it says: Ubekjendt, Sindsvag. In English, it means Unknown, 'Weak Mind' - in other words, he probably had a stroke.- roar -

The medical doctor who attempted to determine the cause of Lars Jansen's death apparently found this quite difficult. However, according to a Norwegian-English Dictionary, www.infonorway.com, sindsvag (or sinnsvak i today's Norwegian) means retarded [possibly as a result of one or more strokes]. Sindsyg (sinnsyk), on the other hand, means mentally ill or insane.
