According to the court psychiatrists, Breivik was already mentally ill by 2006, but none of the Freemasons that NRK spoke to reacted to any indication of mental illness in Breivik.
Breivik became a Freemason after he and his mother were invited to celebrate Christmas together with his mother’s second-cousin, Jan Behring, and his wife. According to Behring, Breivik expressed interest in becoming a Freemason and Behring eventually became his sponsor.
During the 7/22 attack on Utøya, the Grand Master of the Norwegian Freemasons, Ivar Skar, could hear the shots and observe the attacker on Utøya from a vacation cabin on a nearby island.

Skar also said that, at the time of his becoming a Freemason, there was nothing about Breivik that indicated that he would not be someone that would fit in well to the organization, and that he seemed like a fine young man.

Stavangeravisen writes that the March telephone threats were made to the Justice Department.
Previous Justice Minister, Knut Storberget (Labor), stepped down in November 2011, a week after he and several other Labor Party leaders received threats posted on a Russian website from a group called The Organization for a Free Norway (Organisasjonen Fritt Norge). Storberget had been a controversial Justice Minister due to his attempts to introduce law changes that would make blasphemy illegal and proposing that the hijab should be allowed in the Norwegian police force.
The Justice Department was located on the seventh floor of the same building as the Prime Minster’s office and was amongst the most severely destroyed offices in the building.
