A Swedish artist has won the bid to create the three memorials for the victims of the 2011 Utøya tragedy in Norway.

The July 22 terror attacks killed eight in a bombing at the government headquarters in Oslo and 69 people, mostly teenagers, were murdered by Anders Breivik in a shooting spree at a youth camp organised by Norway’s social-democratic Arbeiderpartiet.

Artist Jonas Dahlberg's Memory Wound will be a 3.5metre (11ft 6in) channel cut in the mainland facing Utøya, creating a 'physical wound' in the landscape.

The comments were interesting. Some were for the artist's interpretation, while others hated it. The guy killed 77 people and only got 21 years. What's with that?
