Torgny Söderberg - merge?

I believe that the two entries below are the same person - 

  • Torgny Söderberg - nm9089232
  • David-Hoffmann Torgny Søderberg - nm1587339 
If so, the entries should be merged, with the most likely direction being the former merged into the latter. 

Is that the most appropriate action?

In my opinion, if the Wikipedia page and its references are accurate (Link 1, Link 2, in Swedish but his name is prominently listed on both pages), I would consider merging the second name page (David-Hoffmann Torgny Søderberg) into the first (Torgny Söderberg).

I noticed at least one of the song titles is listed on both pages ("Diggi-Loo Diggi-Ley").

It's also worth noting that, of David-Hoffmann Torgny Søderberg's 12 credits, 7 of them are "as Torgny Söderberg". So on IMDB, the most common form of the name is "Torgny Söderberg".

A Google search for David-Hoffmann Torgny Søderberg returns less results than one for the other name.

Discogs.com has his entry under "Torgny Söderberg".

Thanks for your response.

Unfortunately something has gone wrong.

The merged entry does not appear to have any of Torgny Söderberg's credits, only the ones belonging to David-Hoffmann Torgny Søderberg.

Prior to the merge 
  • David-Hoffmann Torgny Søderberg had 12 credits
  • Torgny Søderberg had 10 credits
The merged entry only has 13.

When I look at the items I  had recently updated for Torgny Søderberg (which is how  I discovered the duplication), these are the sorts of display that appear -

Helmiä ja sikoja (2003)



Neither of these titles appear in the merged entry.

There are more than these.
