The snapshot emerging of 32-year-old Anders Behring Breivik, the suspect in Norway's twin attacks:
- He is a self-described nationalist who posted in extreme right forums in Norway. He often complained about Islam ("I know of many hundred occasions where non-Muslims have been robbed, beaten up and harassed by Islamic gangs" reads one sample) and Norway's immigration policy.
- He is thought to be a single, well-educated loner who lived with his mother in Oslo.
- He ran some kind of a farm, which gave him access to large amounts of fertilizer that could be used to make bombs.
- According to his now-removed Facebook profile, he likes Dexter, the video games World of Warcraft and Modern Warfare 2, body-building, and hunting. His favorite books are 1984 and Kafka's the Trial.
- His lone post on Twitter is a John Stuart Mill quote: "One person with a belief is equal to the force of 100,000 who have only interests."
