"Nobody Dies in Skarnes"

I began watching a Norwegian series on Netflix last night - "Nobody Dies in Skarnes." I'm glad I started watching it - oddly amusing.

By coincidence, I asked about several people who died of Covid in the neighboring town. I know at least three people from that town who died of Covid, but the town's fatality count is still 0. Someone told me that they died in hospitals in other counties, so they didn't die in that town. However, I just realized that five people died in my town, and the count is listed as 5, even though there is no hospital in my town. Could it be that all the town deaths refer to people who died at home?

Anyway, since the neighboring town has no hospital, it's unlikely that many people would die there. The town's slogan could be "Nobody dies in Shandaken."

I don't know if they still skew the mortality statistics this way in Florida (I would not be surprised) - they used to only report the deaths of "Florida residents" only. Considering that many of the deaths of older folks here were in snowbirds who were legal residents somewhere up north, I always wondered just where their deaths were reported, if they were...

Yes, most of life is a mystery.
