The only written source is by Dinklage / Witthöft "Die deutsche Handelsflotte 1939 -1945". They say sunk by norwegian shore batteries during a fight with the german light cruiser Karlsruhe. And they say expressly the light cruiser was aware of the german ship and not sunk it by misake.
The other informations i got from various websites and made the experience like you. I tried to find the websites again but i can't.
