Baldur's death

This is an interesting blog post: "

There are at least three versions of Baldur's death.
In the poetic, elder Edda, it only says that Baldur was killed by His brother Hodr.
In Snorri Sturluson's prose Edda, he writes that Loki gave Hodr a dart (or was it an arrow?)of mistletoe, which He threw and killed Baldur with.
In Saxo Grammaticus' "
Gesta Danorum"
, Baldur and Hodr fight over Nanna, and Hodr gives Baldur a fatal wound with His sword.
