    Halldor was born in 1902 in Reykjavik, where he lived until 1905 when his family moved to Laxnes in Mosfellsdalur near the town of Mosfellsbær about 15 km east-northeast of the capital. At a young age he started to read books and write stories. In the winter of 1915-1916 he attended the technical school in Reykjavik. In 1916 he had an article published in the newspaper Morgunblaðið.
