The Norwegian politician Haakon Lie, who has died aged 103, played a key role in turning his country from one of the poorest in Europe into one of the richest. Even though he never joined parliament or the cabinet, no major political decision made between 1945 and 1969 was taken without his involvement. When Israel was trying to acquire nuclear power in the 1950s, Lie made sure it would get 20 tonnes of the heavy water it needed to build a reactor from Norway, which was a producer.
