Method: Four biographies written in Sweden, has been analysed and coded. Two, written by men and two written by women. Result: No decisive gender differences in the grieving process was found. The women in the biographies more actively
searched human contact in social situation, as well as searched more for professional help. The men mostly tried to process their grief by themselves.
