A Norwegian Tragedy: Anders Behring Breivik and the Massacre on Utøya


On 22 July 2011 a tender guy named Anders Behring Breivik conducted the most vicious terrorist acts in post-war Europe. In a delicately orchestrated series of activities he bombed executive structures in Oslo, leading to 8 deaths, then performed a mass capturing at a camp of the employees’ early life League of the Labour celebration at the island of Utøya, the place he murdered sixty-nine humans, ordinarily little ones.

How may perhaps Anders Behring Breivik - a middle-class boy from the West finish of Oslo - turn out as probably the most violent terrorists in post-war Europe? the place did his hatred come from?

In A Norwegian Tragedy, Aage Borchgrevink makes an attempt to supply a solution. Taking us with him to the multiethnic and class-divided urban the place Breivik grew up, he follows the offender of the assaults into an unusual on-line global of violent laptop video games and anti-Islamic hatred, and demonstrates the relationship among Breivik’s youth and the darkest pages of his 1500-page manifesto.

this can be the definitive tale of twenty-two July 2011: a Norwegian tragedy.
