Norwegian mass killer Anders Behring Breivik (C) arrives to hear the verdict in his trial at a courtroom in Oslo August 24, 2012. A Norwegian court found Anders Behring Breivik sane on Friday in the murder of 77 people in a shooting spree and bomb massacre last year, bringing some closure to a Nordic nation devastated by its worst attack since World War Two. Breivik, who has admitted blowing up the government headquarters with a fertiliser bomb, killing eight, before gunning down 69 at the ruling party's summer youth camp, faces 21 years in jail with likely indefinite extensions.

As Anders Breivik now enters the prison system, the possibility remains - however remote - that he will be released in the future. Host Marco Werman talks with Thomas Ugelvik from the University of Oslo about justice - Norway style.
