Mass Murderer,  Breivik's mother reacts to his son’s purchase of weapons in an interview with the police as his father and step father participate in documentary that seek to understand the killer’s upbringing.

Friday, 23 December 2011
Norwegian mass murdered, Anders Breivik Behring's mother was surprised that her son bought a gun, but did not realize what was to be used for.

Norwegian newspaper, VG wrote that in conversations with legal experts,  Breivik 65-year-old mother spoke of how her son brought the weapons and other equipment to the apartment where they lived.

Breivik lived with his mother during the time when legal experts suspect that he became ill. Mass murderer Anders Behring Breivik, on 22 July this year, killed 77 people in s serious terrorist attacks in Oslo and at the island of Ut�ya. Despite his success in single handedly  organising the killing process and bombing government quarters, has been diagnosed if an illness called paranoid schizophrenic.

In autumn 2010 she reacted when her son ordered various objects to the apartment. Among other things he should have ordered what his mother calls "a bulletproof vest."
In early 2011, Breivik also had ordered a gun and walked around the apartment wearing camouflage clothing and talked about an impending civil war. When his mother asked of the clothes he replied that he was about to take a hunting license.

“He talked loud and intense. It was really unpleasant. I did everything to avoid the aspects of his attitude,” the mother is reported to have said.

His mother confronted him with weapons purchases and said he had to move from the apartment if he continued to buy weapons and equipment.

During the spring of 2011 Breivik said that he would be a farmer, and in April 2011 he moved to a farm in Rena, where he claimed he cultivated vegetables. During his time in the farm,  Breivik ordered large amounts of fertilizer, used in the bombings of Oslo on 22 July.

When Breivik mother knew what her son had done on July 22 she broke down and was sent to a psychiatric clinic for treatment.

Anders Breivik Behring has refused to be interrogated by the press and has refused to talk about his childhood. In a documentary produced by the Norwegian network, NRK has sought o interview Breivik’s father and stepfather in quest to understanding his upbringing.

The quest really is to understand the motives and background to Anders Breivik Behring’s action during the terrorist attacks on 22 July this year, many people have sought to provide some form of explanation on the childhood of the killer.

The newly recorded interviews see views for the first time from Jens Breivik, his biological father and Tore Tollefsen the man he calls his stepfather. They’ll individually give their own picture of the images Anders Breivik Behring took as he grew up and the nature of his family through out his upbringing.

Jens Breivik has not seen his son for more than 15 years, but has since last summer, seen his face every day in the press along with scornful utterances:
“I understand that people hate him. None of those atrocities can ever be granted forgiveness. But I hope that those who are interested can get over the hatred,” says Jens Breivik in the documentary.

Tore Tollefsen came into Behring Anders Breivik's life when he was 12 years old:
“He was a gentle person, one of those who took care of their friends. He was not some tough guy, so to speak,” says Tore Tellefsen. What role could Tore had played in driving the young man into extremism, the documentary could give a clue
