On 23 October in the Ambassdor’s Residence, Minister Counsellor Ulrika Funered bestowed upon Dr Sarah Death the Order of the Polar Star for her services to Swedish literature in Britain.  

The Order of the Polar Star is a reward for Swedish and foreign “civic merits, for devotion to duty, for science, literary, learned and useful works and for new and beneficial institutions”. The motto of the Order of the Polar Star is Nescit Occasum. In English, it means “it knows no decline”.
