But, I guess, you never know. NRK also has a podcast about the case it’s called Familiene på Orderud. You might also be interested in the mystery of the Isdalkvinne. It’s about a woman who was found dead near Bergen (Isdalen) in 1970 under suspicious circumstances. Until this day nobody knows who she was, but one theory is that she was a spy for a foreign power. There’s a podcast from NRK about the case called Gåten i Isdalen.
I’m inclined to agree with you about Per and Veronica seeming too nice to commit such a heinous crime themselves, but I can see them hiring somebody else to do it. This is, of course, pure conjecture, but if that’s in fact what they did, it would make sense that they kept silent even though it meant spending years in prison. Ratting out a professional killer (or killers) is seldom a good idea if you want to live long, especially in a country with a 21-year maximum prison sentence.
I watched “Gåten i Isdalen”, too. A team of experts strive to ascertain the identity of an international woman of mystery poisoned and set afire in the woods nearly half a century ago, with nothing to go on but her mandible. Now if that’s not entertainment, I don’t know what is.
