Norway is home to some of the most expensive — and humane — jails in the world.
The government’s aim is to rehabilitate inmates rather than punishing them, so prison cells are usually more comfortable than some people’s homes. For instance, inside Halden’s maximum security prison, each cell has a small fridge, flat panel television and an ensuite bathroom.
But all of this, apparently, is not luxurious enough for one prisoner.
Anders Breivik, who ruthlessly massacred 77 people in 2011, is suing Norway because his three-room Skien prison cell violates a ban on "inhuman and degrading treatment."
Despite the fact that he has separate areas where he can study, exercise and sleep he claims he is being treated harshly by prison authorities.
But it isn’t the first time the mass murderer has made such a complaint. In January 2015, Breivik threatened to go on a hunger strike because he wanted a PlayStation 3 instead of PlayStation 2.
His latest lawsuit seems even more ridiculous considering how Pirate Bay co-founder Gottfrid Svartholm Warg was kept in far worse conditions in Denmark.
The Swedish hacker, convicted of copyright infringement, was deprived of any kind of reading material, including access to mail, during his solitary confinement. Breivik, a mass killer, on the other hand, enrolled at the University of Oslo to study political science.
