MIAMI, Aug. 15, 2011 /PRNewswire-HISPANIC PR WIRE/ — July 22nd 2011, a day now indelibly ingrained in Norway’s history, is the date Anders Behring Breivik killed eight people in a bomb set off outside government headquarters in Oslo and embarked on a 90-minute shooting spree, resulting in the death of 69 young people on Utoya Island. Discovery en Espanol chronicles the events of that horrid day – and the impact it has on this nation and its people – in Norway Massacre: The Killer’s Mind (Noruega: de la paz al terror), an hour-long special set to premiere on Discovery en Espanol on Sunday, August 21 at 10 PM E/P.

Breivik calls his actions “atrocious but necessary,” but exactly who is this man, and what led him to act? Through psychological analysis Norway Massacre: The Killer’s Mind examines the mind and the motives of the self-confessed assassin who is responsible for these heinous killings. This program provides new insight into Breivik’s motives by some of the world’s leading experts on criminal psychology including Professor David Wilson and Johns Hopkins University’s Katherine Newman, analyzing his likely psychological journey during that day and asking just what drove him to orchestrate and carry out this plan of carnage.

Weaving together the moments leading up to this tragedy, the documentary also charts the hour-by-hour events from the time of the bomb Breivik set off in Oslo, to the cold-blooded shooting of defenseless young people on the idyllic island of Utoya. In addition, the special will provide first-hand accounts from eyewitnesses and survivors who personally suffered the tragedy.
