Norway's ever-creative NRK network has come up with yet another strange but surprisingly compelling 'slow TV' experiment -- Piip Show, described by its creator as a "reality TV show with wild birds".
Norway has chosen the thick-set former bouncer Carl Espen to represent it at the Eurovision Song Contest in Copenhagen, betting on a piano-driven ballad rather than the usual frenetic Europop.
Norwegian music journalist Jostein Pedersen has mercilessly attacked Utøya survivor 'Mo' Abdi Farah for "cynically" milking his trauma on the island to try and win a place as Norway's entry to the Eurovision Song Contest.
The US film giant Warner Brothers has bought the rights to turn Jo Nesbø's next book, Blood in the Snow, into a Hollywood blockbuster.
The planned memorial to those who died on Utøya will be impossible to build -- or would at least look nothing like the images that have spread around the world, a local geologist has declared, arguing the rocks are too soft and porous.
