Utøya, ten years on. Thinking about the impact on those who managed the forensic aftermath
Some events are so painful, so shocking that they are difficult to think about, to face up to. This conversation is inevitably tainted with the horror at Utøya ten years ago this summer but Knut focusses on the people and the systems that dealt with the immediate aftermath. The prison managers, the officers, the politicians.
