The Grenade Men. Terror in Norway

February 4th, 1965. On the quiet streets of Oslo, a man trips on a wire and sets off a grenade. In the following weeks, the city is shaken by six more grenade traps, placed in an increasingly deadly fashion. 

The Norwegian Constitution Day is approaching and people are stricken with fear. For the first time in post war Norway, the citizens of Oslo experience uncontrollable and incomprehensible terror from someone within their own society. 

A society they thought they knew and thought to be safe. How did they respond?
