On 22 July 2011 a young man named Anders Behring Breivik carried
out one of the most vicious terrorist acts in post-war Europe. In a
carefully orchestrated sequence of actions he bombed government
buildings in Oslo, resulting in eight deaths, then carried out a
mass shooting at a camp of the Workers? Youth League of the
Labour Party on the island of Utoya, where he murdered
sixty-nine people, mostly teenagers.
How could Anders Behring Breivik - a middle-class boy from the West
End of Oslo - end up as one of the most violent terrorists in
post-war Europe? Where did his hatred come from?
In A Norwegian Tragedy, Aage Borchgrevink attempts to
provide an answer. Taking us with him to the multiethnic and
class-divided city where Breivik grew up, he follows the
perpetrator of the attacks into an unfamiliar online world of
violent computer games and anti-Islamic hatred, and demonstrates
the connection between Breivik?s childhood and the darkest
pages of his 1500-page manifesto.
This is the definitive story of 22 July 2011: a Norwegian tragedy.
