On 22 July 2011, Anders Behring Breivik killed 77 of his fellow Norwegians in a terrorist atrocity that shocked the world. Many were teenagers, just beginning their adult lives. In the devastating aftermath, the inevitable questions began. How could this happen? Why did it happen? And who was Anders Breivik?

Award-winning foreign correspondent Åsne Seierstad has spent years writing about people caught up in violent conflict. Now, for the first time, she examines her home country. Her work is based on Breivik’s statements and writings, as well as police records and interviews with people involved in the murder spree, as victims or relatives of victims.

That Brevik had a dangerous imagination is clear. But to what extent can we separate him from the ideas that fed him?
