Americans Reacting to Halden Prison
A Norwegian reflection on how Americans react to watching documentaries of Halden prison, the world’s most humane prison.
Many of us from small countries are guilty of being suckers for wanting to know what everybody in the big world thinks about us. So sometimes it is fun watching Americans react to videos about something in Norway. Oddly, we seemed to have carved ourselves this odd brand of the country of fjords and humane prisons. What a bizarre thing to be known for abroad!
