On Our Minds
Mass Murderers Among US
We’ve been thinking a lot about the mass shooting in Orlando. It reminded us of another horrific massacre from a few years ago in Norway. The killers’ politics were different - Anders Breivik was a white supremacist – but you can see similarities: the loneliness and alienation and then the craving for glory.
Norwegian journalist Asne Seierstad covered the Breivik case, and she’s given us a remarkable portrait of this terrorist and her country’s response to his violence. For this interview we're kicking off what we're calling "TTBOOK Extra," a longer-form interview that you'll only hear online or in our podcast feed.
