Also, I was struck by the humane attitude of the court system in Norway. They want to be very sure not to punish someone who is schizophrenic, but to put them in a hospital.
What I also loved was the emphasis based on the importance of cultural insight for psychiatrists when diagnosing a psychiatric condition.
For me the book was more than just understanding "The mind of a madman"
I loved the insight into Norways very liberal democratic and humane legal system. I would like to read more books from this journalist on his experience with radical ideologies and societies that use Religion as a tool to advocate violence against fellow human beings.
In his book The Mind of a Madman: Norway's struggle to understand Anders Breivik, released here as a Kindle Single, the author has presented us with a surprising look into the mind of mass murderer Anders Behring Breivik, starting from when he first surfaced at Utøya on that horrific July day in his wetsuit and began his bloodbath. This was to become the biggest peacetime massacre ever carried out by a single gunman.
The author takes us into a largely chronological look at Anders Behring Breivik, where the Norwegian media began reporting the attack on Utøya, even before the police arrived. Then the reports began that the murderer wasn't an Islamic terrorist, a member of the jihadi group called Ansar al-Jihad al-Alami, as had been conveyed earlier in the day: he was a blond, blue-eyed Norwegian.
Days before the attacks, Breivik had anonymously sent a declaration document via email to over 1,000 addresses about 90 minutes before the bomb blast in Oslo, and one of the recipients a copy of it on an Internet forum, where it went viral within hours. This 1500-page manifesto, which carried the title "2083: A European Declaration of Independence," was signed Andrew Berwick, a pseudonym for Anders Breivik.Read more ›
