Norwegian term or phrase: innepike
In a book I am translating there is a document stating:

"Arrestantens navn, stand, alder, hjemsted og vesentlige signalement: Kari Brekke, innepike, 20 år, født i Geilo, 65 tommer høy, taler norsk, sped benbygning, svanger."

What does "innepike" mean? Is it an occupation or sth else?
