90 percent of people under 30 answer positively to “throwing away the key”, whilst 87 percent of all those asked agree. 7 percent think he should be released at some stage.

Divided regionally, most people in favour of locking Breivik up for good live in western Norway (Vestlandet), 92 percent.

The figures look slightly different regarding the mass murderer’s enforced psychiatric treatment, according to NRK’s poll. Just over a third, 36 percent, agree with the move, 47 percent answered they are against it.

In Oslo, and northern Norway (Nord-Norge), 48 and 46 percent are in favour, respectively. 22 percent of Vestlandet’s inhabitants are either unsure, or have no opinion.

Moreover, 36 out of 110 people sentenced to compulsory psychiatric treatment for violent crimes, rape, or murder between 2005 and 2011 in regional Helse Sør-Øst’s ‘care’ have been released.

“These have been deemed to no longer pose a danger to society,” says Oslo University Hospital’s Stine Kilden to Aftenposten.

One of them has been convicted for two new offences.
