The local Sea Monster in Storsjön has its official website here:

For a long time Norway has been a center for sea- and ocean-based monsters. Here there have been sightings of monsters in about 50 lakes and towns along the coastline. In 1522 it was reported that a sea monster existed in Mjøsa. The monster was long and had several colours. It had a horse head with a long black mane. The monster became stranded on a cliff where it was killed. It started rotting and infested the air until they were forced to burn the cadavre. Later such clear proof of the monster's existence was not able to be proven. The large population of Seamonsters in Norway is interesting from a Sweedish perspective. The Swedish population is concentrated around the old Norwegian areas of Sweden, Jämtland and Bohusläan.

Seljods ormen is a famous Norwegian Sea monster. Find more information on her here:
