Harrowing and Vivid
On July 22, 2011, Anders Behring Breivik detonated a bomb outside government buildings in central Oslo, killing eight people. He then proceeded to a youth camp where he killed 69 more, most of them teenage members of Norway's governing Labour Party. In One of Us, the journalist Asne Seierstad tells the story of this terrible day and what led up to it. What made Breivik, a gifted child from an affluent neighborhood in Oslo, become a terrorist? One of Us is a harrowing and thorough account of the massacre that upended Norway, and the trial that helped put the country back together.
