    About " Åsne Seierstad "

  • Åsne Seierstad

    Asne Seierstad has received numerous awards for her journaism and has reported from such war torn regions as Chchnya, the Balkans, Afghanistan, and Iraq She is fluent in five languages and lives in Norway.


  • This is a hard book to review. Åsne Seierstad’s One of Us, is incredibly well-researched and written, a near-masterpiece of journalism. Its subject matter, though, is impossible: the massacre of seventy-seven Norwegians by bomb and firearm on July 22, 2011. Most of the victims were teens. They were among sixty-nine people killed on the island of Utøya, which a left-wing youth political party used as a summer camp. As I read One of Us, I kept wondering why I kept going. It became a philosophi [...]

  • RADICALISATIONWe hear a lot about radicalisation these days. Three girls aged 15 and 16 went off by themselves from east London to Syria to join Isis a couple of weeks ago. Three days ago a 19 year old guy was given 22 years in prison for wishing to cut off the head of a British soldier (he was caught before he did it, unlike Michael Adebolajo and Michael Adebowale, who did behead a British soldier on the streets of London on 22 May 2013). The word for all of these young people is jihadis.One of [...]

  • Åsne Seierstad is a nonfiction writer and foreign affairs journalist who had never written about her native Norway before she was asked to cover the case of Anders Breivik, on trial for mass murder in the city of Oslo and on the island of Utøya. She found herself uncertain how to explain the Breivik phenomenon after listening to ten weeks of trial testimony and decided she needed to go deeper. To Breivik’s story she adds those of three Breivik killed (Simon Sæbø, Bano Rashid, Anders Kristi [...]

  • This book was difficult for two reasons:The first being the obvious horror and tragedy of the events it relates. Imaging the incredible fear of those people kicks you right in the gut. I genuinely felt sick reading parts of it. The second is due to Seierstad's choice to write in a sensationalist novel format. If I hadn't known the reality, I would have thought it was another badly written crime novel. It almost made some of the information seem made up or too cliche. It made me feel guilty for m [...]

  • Oh my! What to say about this one? Seierstad has done a great job of pulling us into the world of Anders Breivik. Her research has been thorough,so far as that goes, and required a lot of travel and interviewing on her part. I think she has attempted to be very fair in her account, giving biographical sketches of the murderer and his victims. She has certainly managed to elicit sympathy for the victims, but I think she narrowly missed the mark in other areas.Breivik's history, you see, is given [...]

  • This book where do I start with this book.I have read a lot of true crime in my days. I have studied and read and researched all the serial killers I know of, all the mass shootings that I know of. But this book was something entirely unique to me. Somehow, for the most part, I usually can "distance" myself from these things. I don't relate to the killers, or the victims usually. But this was different.One fine summer day I went to a breakfast restaurant with my mom and my sister. I had just tur [...]

  • This is a well-written and well-researched book by Åsne Seierstad (who also wrote the very interesting The Bookseller of Kabul) about the 2011 massacre in the generally tranquil country of Norway. Most of the 77 victims were teens. Seierstad focuses not only the murderer, Anders Breivik and his troubled childhood (which doesn't seem troubled enough to explain his horrific act) but on the lives of five of his victims. This makes their deaths even more painful for the reader.I appreciated how Sei [...]

  • In 2011 Norway suffered its worst ever terrorist attack. A bomb, planted in a van outside of the Prime Minister’s office killed eight people in Oslo’s government quarter. As the terrorist walked away from the van, before the explosion, a witness noticed he carried a gun and noted down the number plate of the vehicle he drove off in. Sadly, this remarkable far-sighted action went unnoticed and the police did not act upon his call (the more such books I read, the more I come across these kind [...]

  • This is in-depth look at domestic terrorist attack in Norway in 2011. Seirstad looks at both those who were killer and the killer. At points you want to weep. But considering Trump's popularity,among other things, it needs to be read.

  • One of Us presents a detailed account of Anders Breivik life and how he came to massacre 79 people. From his sad childhood until his total break with reality Anders Breivik devised a terrible plot against his country because he opposed the immigration happening in Norway.  What struck me most about this story was how totally unprepared the Norwegian government was for this type of attack.Was Anders Breivik a homegrown terrorist or raving manic? I think he was not working with a full deck.  Wit [...]

  • Este é daqueles casos em que a realidade supera a ficção. História de um grandíssimo FDP chamado Anders Breivik que decidiu matar 77 pessoas, primeiro com uma bomba em Oslo e depois ao tiro (tipo caça desportiva) na ilha de Utoya, contra miúdos inocentes, tudo porque estava contra a islamização da Europa. A autora do “Último Livreiro de Cabul” faz um grande trabalho jornalístico aproveitando a sua experiência para nos dar uma imagem fiel de quem Anders Breivik é e como chega a e [...]

  • This is perhaps the modern day successor to In Cold Blood. The details and buildup are harrowing and claustrophobic, yet don't seem exploitative. A lot of care and respect went into this book, and the survivors and parents of the victims treated with decency. But there were times when I just had to put the book down and walk away.

  • Åsne Seierstad has written an astonishingly lucid and sympathetic narrative no one would actually look forward to reading – except that once you start you can barely put it down. The Norwegian horror story, a massacre of seventy-seven people, is one of the worst such episodes in modern times. Every time I mentioned to someone that I was reading this book, I was met with a look of disbelief. Implicit in the reaction: why would you want to read about THAT? Yet it’s impossible to avert one’s [...]

  • I'm no masochist; I chose to read this book mostly because of its widespread acclaim. The subject matter is indeed terrible, but it is also awfully compellingly written. It is a tragic and ultimately angering book, but one containing both a wealth of detail and a novelistic narrative pace.First of all I must say that I am not taken aback by being asked to understand (at least to some degree) as a human being a man most consider to be a monster. Anders Behring Breivik undoubtedly committed a mass [...]

  • Ich kann es nicht wirklich in Worte fassen. Eindrücklich, bedrückend, tragisch, schockierend, unglaublich, traurig, fassungslos, schrecklich, narzisstisch, so vieles das da hoch kommt. Es ist immer noch unfassbar und nicht nachzuvollziehen wie ein (!!!) Mensch so kalt, blind, kalkulierend, gefühlslos und grausam sein kann.

  • It's always going to be difficult to review a book about such a sickening and notorious crime as the massacre which happened on the island of Utoya in July 2011, and the bomb attack which happened in central Oslo just beforehand. Norway is one of my favourite countries, and Oslo is certainly one of the most peaceful and friendly places I have ever visited. I was even more shocked, therefore, when I learnt about Breivik's crime. What occurred was reported in the British media, but relatively few [...]

  • Kniha o Breivikovi. Napísaná tak vynikajúcim spôsobom, že sa až človek cíti blbo zato, ako to rýchlo hltá. Žiadna super fikcia, reálny, desivý príbeh.Masová vražda ako táto, sa asi nedá vysvetliť. Napriek tomu je obdivuhodné, do akej hĺbky sa o to autorka pokúsila. Nie je to žiaden chválospev o zlom a dobrých. Príhody s vyrovnávaním sa s multukulturalizmom v 80-tych rokoch, spackaná reakcia polície v deň útoku, napätie medzi pozostalými a mládežníckou organiz [...]

  • On July 22, 2011 Norway experienced the worst post war massacre when Anders Behring Breivik first detonated a bomb in the government quarter in Oslo and then shot and killed 77 children in a political summer camp. I had just come back from holiday and I remember the shock and my fury at the perpetrator and the disbelief that this could happen in my adopted country. I approached the book tentatively - did I really want to relieve the emotions of July 22nd, 2011? Did I really want to learn ANYTHIN [...]

  • Gosh, what a hard book to rate! I want to give it 4.5/5 for research and indepth-ness [not a word, but you know what I mean!], but the problem I was faced with is that it was almost too long. I get that it was an amazing piece of research and shined great light on such an awful event in history. But is it okay to say that the epicness of it wore on my nerves and wound me down? I need something light and fluffy now!Oh man, I should also say something about the story. What a tragedy that people li [...]

  • Detailed, fascinating and distressing in equal measure. At times it felt voyeuristic and too graphic, but it was a good analysis of not just an individual man but also of Norwegian society, of the police response on that day. Also a celebration of the life and aspirations of the victims and the grief of their families. Really hard to read at times.

  • I can't remember what made me want to read this book. While I certainly remember the headlines from the horrifying events in Norway in 2011, I knew very little about the country itself, and next to nothing about Anders Behring Breivik. Seierstad intertwines the story of the victims, Norway, Norwegians, and Breivik into a fast-paced and absolutely gutting 500 pages of investigative journalism. I cried at several times throughout this book and found entire chapters to be difficult. This is meant f [...]

  • On May 15, 2015 the jury in the Boston bombing case voted the death penalty for Dzhokhar Tsarnaev for his role in the massacre at the April 15, 2013 Boston Marathon. Tsarnaev acted out of an ideology that was the antithesis of Anders Behring Breivik, the self-proclaimed commander of the Norwegian anti-communist resistance movement who in July, 2011 sought to rid Europe of what he perceived to be its Islamization and, secondly to make a statement about what cultural diversity, and the feminist mo [...]

  • While I was reading this, the newspapers were full of the story of the German pilot who (it appears) deliberately crashed his plane and 150 passengers into a French mountain. The Sydney Lindt Café hostage story took place only a couple of months ago. The young man from Melbourne who went off to fight with IS in Syria. Lone men doing crazy things. [I’m not suggesting that these events have similar causal elements or much in the way of similarity apart from their newsworthiness, the fact that t [...]

  • Tror aldri jeg har vært så glad for å være ferdig med en bok Meget spennende de første 200 sidene, ufattelig tung etter. Glad jeg har lest den, det er virkelig en strålende bok. Men etter flere kvelder og en morgen med En av oss som selskap blir det ubeskrivelig godt å legge den fra seg og fokusere på noe annet.

  • This is one of the best written books I have read in a very long time. It is a book which will stay with me forever and not just because it covers the 77 horrific murders which Anders Behring Breivik committed on the 22 July 2011. Despite its horrific topic it is written in a very researched, factual, compassionate and sympathetic (event to some extend to Breivik and his family) way without either being sensational or sentimental.This book gives a voice to many of the victims and their families, [...]

  • One of Us is an ambitious, horrifying account of the 2011 massacre in Norway that resulted, almost impossibly, in the loss of 77 lives, most of them children. The attack was carried out in two locations, Oslo and the island of Utøya, by one man, Anders Breivik, on one day, July 22. Anders made a bomb. He put it in a car, and set it off in Regjeringskvartalet, the nation's government district. The bomb went off, killing 8. He was dressed as a policeman. He got in another car and drove north towa [...]

  • Åsne Seierstad has done a really good job writing about something so sad and raw. I've always been interested in the minds of "monsters", people who commit despicable crimes. Seierstad provides very few definitive answers on how he grew up to be who he is today. But Anders Behring Breivik is not a monster. He was and remains one of us. I especially liked one little piece of dialogue between some policeman and Behring Breivik where he hopefully says, "You must think I'm some kind of a monster." [...]

  • Io però a un certo punto mi aspettavo Harry Hole che arrivava e bloccava quel coglione. Invece Harry Hole non è arrivato. E quel coglione ha ammazzato tutti. Nella vita vera Harry Hole non arriva mai, mannaggia.

  • This is a well researched/journalistic true crime story about the norwegian terrorist Anders Breivik who July 22, 2011 killed/massacred 77 people (the majority were teens/young people between 14-20 years old). In the book, the readers get know Breivik - his background/childhood, his somewhat strange, love/hate relationship with his mother, his politic thoughts, his thorough planing and his implementation that killed so many people. Equally we also get to know some of the teen victims and their b [...]
