Oslo, June 12 (ANI): Meeting Norwegian mass killer Anders Behring Breivik in jail was like meeting Hannibal Lecter, a cannibal in a horror movie, a psychologist has said.
Meeting Breivik was almost like meeting Hannibal, said Eirik Johannesen, who spent 26 hours speaking with Breivik, who has been accused of killing 77 people in a shooting and bombing rampage last year.
According to The Telegraph, Johannesen was called by Breivik's defence to back its case that he was not crazy when he killed people in Norway.
Johannesen told the court he was 'completely convinced' that Breivik was not psychotic, attributing his radical views to political extremism and not mental illness.
If Breivik, 33, is found sane, he will face a 21-year jail term, which could be extended indefinitely if he is still considered a threat to society.
If he is found insane he would receive closed psychiatric care, possibly for life.
The panel of five judges will hand down their verdict either on July 20 or August 24. (ANI)
