In the article the author analyses the tragic events in Norway: explosion in the governmental quarter and massacre on Utoya island on July 22, 2011 became the most terrible acts of violence in the country after World War II. The author calls into question the words that the terrorism didn’t exist in Norway before Anders Behring Breivik and nothing foretold such an event. The analysis of the Norwegian far-right forces since 1970 and Islamic threat after the act of terrorism on September 11, 2001 showed that some political and ideological forces of the country contributed to the development of climate which made possible the considered act of terrorism. The idea that the death of five Norwegians during hostage taking in In Amenas in Algeria in January, 2013 is considered to be one more challenge to the Norwegian attempts to adapt to new realities of terrorism.
