In her book “One of us” Norwegian author Åsne Seierstad tells the story of Anders Breivik and the massacre that left 76 mostly young people dead on July 22, 2011 – Norway’s greatest peacetime trauma.
The European Court of Human Rights found Anders Breivik's jail conditions did not violate the European Convention on Human Rights. Breivik is serving 21 years for a bomb and shooting attack that killed 77 people in Oslo.
Asne Seierstad has written books on personalities in conflict. She looks at Norwegian mass murder Anders Breivik with the same, unjudging eye as two women who became Islamists. Judgment, she told DW, is for her readers.
John Ausonius has received a second life sentence for the murder of a Jewish woman in Frankfurt. Ausonius' attacks on immigrants in the 90s are thought to have inspired other far-right "lone wolves," like Anders Breivik.
Norway's government is appealing a ruling saying it has violated mass murderer Anders Behring Breivik's human rights. His biographer, meanwhile, says he is manipulating his public image from prison.
