One of Doughty's six best books, as shared at the Daily Express:
ONE OF US by Asne Seierstad

An amazing piece of journalism about the Anders Breivik killings in Norway. It’s a biography of Breivik then running parallel are the stories of two of his victims.

By the time you get to the massacre you know what’s at stake.

It should be required reading for every counter-terrorism officer as there were opportunities to stop him.
