Karl Helmer Alexandersson, born on 16 November 1886 and died in Stockholm on 24 December 1927, was a composer and violinist. During his life he gained considerable success both with his second symphony and his film music, although without achieving true recognition. Within film music he was one of the most important Swedish pioneers. However, he died early, at the age of 41 in extreme poverty.
