Dignified defiance

Like everyone else I am still at loss for words with which to describe the atrocious crimes committed by the terrorist and traitor Anders Behring Breivik against his nation on Friday. But perhaps it will suffice to post these photos showing how I found Oslo today when I returned from holiday.


  1. Dear Trond
    I read your blog because I find your insights and obvious wealth of knowledge fascinating, and your writing style engaging. I am so sorry that this has happened to your country and your people. I take this opportunity to say that here in Australia we are thinking about Norway and share in your grief. The world stands by your side.
    Lea Mai, Sydney, Australia

  2. I have been impressed by the grace and dignity with which Norwegians have been coping with this tragedy. May your country honor the victims' memories by living on as a strong and peaceful society.

  3. Thank you, both of you. The many expressions of sympathy from our foreign friends have been much appreciated by everyone here in Norway.

  4. All my love to Norway, the Royal Familly and to the Norvegians. To day, we are all Norvegians.
