Nils Olof Thorbjörn Fälldin (24 April 1926 – 23 July 2016) was a Swedish politician.[1]

He was the Prime Minister of Sweden in three times, but in different terms. First was from 1976 to 1982, and leader of the Swedish Centre Party from 1971 to 1985.[1] On his first appointment in 1976, he was the first non-Social Democrat Prime Minister for forty years and the first since the 1930s not to have worked as a professional politician since his teens.

Fälldin died at his farm in Högsjö, Ångermanland on 23 July 2016, aged 90.[2]
