The Norwegian convicted of the massacre of 77 people last year has said he is being held in "inhumane" conditions.

Anders Behring Breivik complained in a letter to the prison service that his coffee is served cold, he does not have enough butter for his bread, and he is not allowed moisturiser.

Breivik is serving a minimum 21-year sentence for the bombings and shootings in Oslo and Utoeya island last July.

The Norwegian authorities have not commented on the letter.

However his lawyer has confirmed that the details of the 27-page document leaked to Norway's VG newspaper are authentic.

I highly doubt that there are worse detention facilities in Norway”

Anders Breivik Breivik is being held in almost complete isolation - 23 hours a day, he says - at Ila prison outside Oslo.

His cell includes three sections, one to sleep, one for study and a third for exercise - each measuring 8 sq m (86 sq ft).

In the letter, he complains that the cell is poorly decorated and has no view.

"I highly doubt that there are worse detention facilities in Norway," he writes.

Among his other complaints are:

* The handcuffs he wears when being moved around the prison "are too sharp and "cut in his wrist"

* The cell is too cold, forcing him to wear three layers of clothes

* He has to rush his morning shave and brushing of teeth

He doesn’t know what inhumane prison conditions even means.

What happened to the people who used to be fearsome vikings?
He should have been executed with a battleaxe.

I can’t believe this guy only got 21 years for his crimes and has such princely accommodations.

I loved Norway when I went there for NATO exercises, but there is something wrong with their judicial system and their culture at large to treat such a monster so leniently.

This guy shoots up a communist youth camp and wants cable?
Next he’ll want a medal.
Let him serve his 15 years or whatever and just think about what he’s done.

Now that’s some tough sentencing 3 1/4 months for every person he killed.

Don’t they have an ACLU there to help this poor soul out of this cruel and unusual punishment?

Where’s Amnesty International?

“...complained in a letter to the prison service that his coffee is served cold, he does not have enough butter for his bread, and he is not allowed moisturiser.”

Spoken like a textbook sociopath. Absolutely incapable of feeling anything akin to regret or empathy. He’ll go to his grave never feeling a moment of remorse for the crimes he has committed.

Hopefully he goes to his grave long before his prison sentence expires.

I agree, his sentence is ENTIRELY too long.

I would suggest a much shorter punishment, followed by a new career.

Namely, a short and intensely painful encounter with a woodchipper, followed by a new career as dogfood. . . .

What a moron. I will say this, however. If I had to spend the next 15 years of my life in something that vaguely resembles an IKEA store, yeah, I'd probably go stark raving loony. Still, complaining of "inhumane conditions" after you've perpetrated the deadliest mass shooting in world history is a bit......insane.

Tell him to convert it islam, then they’ll treat him like a king, purely out of fear and diversity (sic).

Well, the people he killed don’t need moisturizer, and they don’t eat much butter. This “person” needs to experience the same conditions that his victims are experiencing right now.

His cell looks a lot nicer than the Anker Hostel I stayed at in Oslo....and I had to pay about $45 per nite. and, Brevik did not have to walk thru Little Pakistan to get there.

And, only 21 years for murdering 80 people! Shut up dude....you’ll give Obama/Holder ideas for their blackfolk

No moisturizer?! Why, it's just like a Nazi concentration camp! Next, he'll be telling us the toilet paper is generic brand.

Send him to Texas....

“Texas has the death penalty and we use it! That’s right. You kill somebody in Texas, we will kill you right back! That’s our policy!

There is a piece of legislation floating around where if two people are witnesses to any murder you commit, you get executed right away. That means that if there are at least two credible eyewitnesses to a murder you committed, you don’t wait on Death Row for 15 years, Jack! You go straight to the front of the line! Other states are trying to abolish the death penalty. My state’s putting in the express lane.”

Well, gee, then, maybe next time you’ll think first of the consequences before killing a bunch of people — perhaps the Norwegian concept of “rehabilitation” is actually working in this case (sarc).

Sounds like he’s just lonely. Maybe, as a humanitarian gesture, we could invite Brevik to spend some time in one of our fine institutions like Rahway or Angola or Raiford. Then he can learn the real prison meaning of “butter.”

This wimp ought to watch “Lockup Raw” late-night on Saturday night. Our murderers get about 54 sq ft (given a 6x9 ft cell) and they only get one room, not three. Plus, most have a roommate. This clown wouldn’t last a week in a USA SuperMax.
