Scream Returned Safely

As if there are already not enough reasons to go to Norway, here’s one more: The Scream is back.

The famous Edvard Munch painting was stolen two years ago from Oslo’s Munch Museum by masked gunmen. Authorities feared the painting had been destroyed to hide the evidence and were losing hope they’d ever see it again.

Diligent police work eventually paid off, however, and Norwegian investigators were very happy to report the painting’s recent recovery. Convicted bank robber David Toska allegedly spilled the beans about the heist in exchange for a shorter sentence.

No word yet on when the masterpiece will be returned to its rightful place but when it does, you can bet there will be a massive increase in security.
