There seems to be a bit of an upsurge of these sorts of people. Mind you, Norway’s not exactly known for it’s happy population……not that that’s any excuse.

There's always been nutters and mass murderers, just more often with a terror motive since about the last 5 years. A few years ago every other headline was to do with a terror attack. Read into it what you will.

Isn't there an element of over reporting? I am sure that around the world there are daily occurrences of multiple homicide but we don't hear about them all. On a slow news day the press need to fill their doom and gloom pages with something. On another day this story would go unreported in Britain.

He's a Muslim convert known to the police according to local reports.

No disrespect Neil but bow and arrow fatalities in the Western World are a bit of a rarity.
Totally disagree that it would not make news here ,and that would be on every day.

Take a look at The World Happiness Report, a publication of the United Nations Sustainable Development Solutions Network. Norway is ranked no. 5. The UK is not among top ten.

Do I really have to remind you that you live on an island populated by pedestrians, that half the population is dead from Covid, and those left behind have problems finding something to eat?

On the other hand, take a look at the suicide rates - maybe too much ‘happiness‘ isn’t that good for people. As for your reminder - if you don’t like it here then there are plenty of other places that may suit your moral standpoint, your choice.
