I watched a bit of the memorial this morning on CBC very bleary eyed and half awake sad to say I fell back asleep about half way through it was like 7am here when it aired. Anyways the thing that really moved me was when I saw the King and Queen cry. That's truly when I realized how much this has affected every single Norwegian. My heart goes out to them all once again.

Is this correct?

BT informs that the off duty police officer who was killed on the island is CP Mette-Marit's step brother.

Kronprinsessens stedbror dræbt på Utøya - Udland - BT.dk

His name is Trond Berntsen.

Apparantly the court confirms is.

ADDED: It seems to be confirmed: http://www.bt.dk/udland/kronprinsess...ebt-paa-utoeya

Trond Berntsen, 51 years old and father of two, was on the island as a security guard. He was the second being killed, apparantly attempting to stop the gunman. He first managed to shove his ten year old son out of the line of fire. The son has survived.

ADDED AGAIN: It get's even worse. A survivor saw a boy around eleven, pleading the gunman to spare him as the gunman had just shot his father. The boy was spared. - As most on the island was from age thirteen and up and as Trond Berntsen's son must have seen his father being shot, it's very likely in my opnion that we are talking about Trond Berntsen's son in this wittness account.

The policeman killed, Trond Berntsen was the son of Rolf Berntsen, the husband of Mette-Marit´s mother Marit Tjessem.
Rolf Berntsen married Crown Princess Mette-Marit's mother Marit Tjessem in 1994. Rolf Berntsen died 10 april 2008 to a severe illness.
Crown Princess Mette-Marit had a close relationship with his stepfather, and Berntsen had the role as back-grandfather of her son Marius.
- Crown Princess thoughts are with his family, said the castle's communications manager, Marianne Hagen, VG.

Thank you to everyone who was loaded info about this most dreadful event. I found the King's speech very moving indeed. A very emotional King Harald and Queen Sonja attended the memorial service and also visited a Oslo hotel where survivors and family members are currently staying. What a wonderful outreach by a true royal family. We are all thinking of Norway at this time.

What terrible news for the Crown Princess Mette-Marit and obviously for his immediate family, and especially his son. I know both her and Marius were very close to her step-father.



«Du har allerede drept pappaen min, jeg er for ung til å dø» - Norge - NRK Nyheter




This survivor tells an absolute harrowing story about an eleven year old boy pleading the gunman for his life; most probably the son of Rolf Berntsen. The survivor, Adrian Pracon, tells that when he and others heard shots they ran to the shore and jumped in the water, he was the last one and did not have time to get his clothes off. Out in the water is soon realizes he can’t keep going because his heavy shoes and sweater is making it too difficult and hard for him to swim, he swims back. Up on shore he sees the gunman shoot people in the water, and he sees when the bullets hits a person because a line of red would shoot up from the body and they would go under. The gunman sees him, goes for him, and he pleads for his life and the gunman for whatever reason doesn’t fire, even though he has him at gun point. At one point the eleven year came up to Adrian, and said his daddy was dead, but then continued walking, and the gunman is walking towards the boy. Adrian can hear what they are talking about, but he lies down between others and pretends to be dead. The boys says “don’t shoot me, you’ve shot enough. Now you have killed my dad and I am too young to die, please don’t shoot. Let it be. The gunman then retreated, possible because he felt some sympathy or something. Adrian saw the boy on land later on and says it wonderful to see him again.

The Crown Princess of Norway's step-brother was one of the first victims gunned down in the murder spree that left 86 dead at a youth summer camp.
Security man Trond Berntsen, the son of Princess Mette-Marit's late stepfather, was among the 86 people killed when Anders Behring Breivik opened fire at a youth camp.

These are truly harrowing pictures. The whole royal family must be deeply shocked.
I can't say anything but pay my condolences to the families and other people in grief.

Have they a good relationship? I heard, the mother of MM had a problem with her stepsons, after her second husband died. Something with inheritance.

She is very brave to have participated to the ceremonies when she was in mourning herself.
