Swedish authorities have confirmed that the two burned bodies found in the ruins of Per Oscarsson’s home are the remains of the actor and his wife, Kia Ostling, according to the Hollywood Reporter. Since the New Year’s Day fire, there were fears that the couple had perished in the blaze, and dental records confirmed the sad news on Wednesday morning. “The cabin they were in was so burnt out, we might never find out exactly what happened,” said Ulf Edberg, a spokesperson for the Swedish police. “But there is no evidence of foul play being involved.” Oscarsson, 83, was a revered Swedish thespian who had a small role in the recent Millenium Trilogy films.
