[All]: Sigurðr’s torture and death are also described by Saxo (Saxo 2005, II, 29, 3-4, pp. 314-17), and his version corresponds closely to Ív Sig and the surrounding prose. See also Andersson and Gade 2000, 463, ch. 93 n. 1, Bjarni Guðnason 1978, 55-66 and Note to st. 42 [All] above. After Sigurðr’s death, his body was brought to Ålborg in Denmark and interred in the Church of S. Mary (Máríukirkja). Clearly, stories about his life and death (and maybe Sig as well) must have circulated in Denmark and been available to Saxo.
