On Friday May 27th 2011, the Norwegian government appointed Øystein Mæland, a psychiatrist and Labour Party politician, as Norway's new Police Director.
To know who Øystein Mæland is, one should read about the Torgersen case, an infamous Norwegian judicial murder. As a member of the Criminal Cases Review Commission, Mæland is responsible for the fact that the Torgersen case was not reopened in 2006.
Another person who took part in the decision not to reopen the case, is Janne Kristiansen. Since then, she has been appointed as the leader of PST, the Police's Surveillance Agency in Norway.
