Ohlmarks, ke (1911–1984), religion historian, Sweden.

ke Joel Ohlmarks, Swedish professor of religion, skillful translator to Swedish of the Icelandic Eddas. His translation of the third part of Snorri's Edda is yet unparalleled.

For some, Ohlmarks is more known as one of several Swedish translators of the books by J. R. R. Tolkien. Ohlmarks started out enthusiastically, but his relationship to the author got rather strained after some time. Some Swedish Tolkien fans prefer other translations than those by Ohlmarks.
