Bil­lion­aire’s wife kid­napped: The wife of a Nor­we­gian bil­lion­aire was ab­ducted more than two months ago and hasn’t been seen since, po­lice re­vealed this week. Anne-Elis­a­beth Falke­vik Ha­gen, 68, was taken from her home near Oslo on Oct. 31. The kid­nap­pers de­manded that her hus­band pay a $10 mil­lion ran­som in cryp­tocur­rency and warned that she would be killed if po­lice were called. Tom Ha­gen has a for­tune of some $2 bil­lion in real es­tate hold­ings and power com­pany in­vest­ments, but au­thor­i­ties ad­vised the 68-year-old against pay­ing. The kid­nap­pers have of­fered no proof that Anne-Elis­a­beth is alive. Po­lice say they have no leads, and went pub­lic with the case this week in the hope that some­one with in­for­ma­tion will come for­ward.
