    "One of Us" - Norway's 9/11

    Four years ago, a young Norwegian killed 8 people by exploding a bomb outside the office of the prime minister. He then drove to an island and murdered 69 more, almost all of them teenagers. Norway was thrown into a state of shock. The country has long been viewed as a haven, protected from mass murder and terrorism by a belief in social cohesiveness and tolerance. What went so terribly wrong? Åsne Seierstad is an award-winning journalist who has written one of the most penetrating accounts of this dark chapter in Norway's history. The English translation of her book, "One of Us: The Story of Anders Breivik and the Massacre in Norway", has just been published.
