reported that “68-year-old Anne-Elisabeth Falkevik Hagen has been missing since Oct. 31.”  The January 9, 2019 article entitled “Norwegian billionaire Tom Hagen’s wife being held for ransom” included these comments about her husband Tom Hagen a real estate investor and owner of power facilities whose “fortune in 2018 amounted to nearly 1.7 billion kroner ($2 billion)is number 172 on a list of the country’s 400 most wealthy people published by Norway’s financial magazine Kapital” that police:

…said a note found in the couple’s house, east of Oslo, described what would happen to her if the demanded ransom wasn’t paid in the cryptocurrency Monero.

…did not give a figure for the ransom amount, but Norway’s VG newspaper reported it was 9 million euros ($10.3 million.)

This is really terrible news!
