“Where are we going?”

From 1987, Vigo Valle asked this question in NRK's ​​”Easter Labyrinth”. He will retire in the summer and today he played his last show and final.

It was won by Alvar mayor Sarah Hamre Sekkingstad (SP).

– It's an adrenaline rush. At first I was at a loss for words. Now I know it's a lot of fun, says Sackingstad.

Husband was in the finals

The show has less than a million viewers from all over Norway and is very popular. Sekkingstad says he called NRK on Thursday to ask if he could attend.

On Friday, a 30-year-old man from Mangar was allowed to participate in the broadcast. There he also qualified for today's final.

– I have followed the competition for a few years. The first time was when Emil Andre Erstadt was in the finals, he says.

Erstad, like Sekkingstad, belongs to Manger in Rado. He has been the head of KrF's youth party and a political advisor to former KrF leader Knut Arild Haride. Today he works as a commentator on Vårt Land.

Two years ago, Scheckingstad's husband, Paul Adrian Rhine, was also in the final.

– He and his cousin helped me in today's match, says Sackingstad.

On Friday, SP politician Marit Arnstad contributed a question. Then one had to travel to his native place, Scottwall.

Mom is a flight attendant

– Why are you so good at this?

– I really enjoy traveling. But there are so many little places I've never heard of. Then I have to justify.

One of the answers she had to justify was Tilbury in England. The tips she got were a funeral and last year's bronze medalist in the elite series, Tromsø, also known as TIL.

– My husband is from Finsnes in Trams. It helped, she laughs.

– Why do you like to travel so much?

– I grew up with a mother who was a flight attendant and traveled a lot.
