One of us : the story of Anders Breivik and the massacre in Norway by Åsne Seierstad( Book )

48 editions published between 2013 and 2016 in 8 languages and held by 1,449 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"On July 22, 2011, Anders Behring Breivik detonated a bomb outside the Norwegian prime minister's office in central Oslo, killing eight people. He then proceeded to a youth camp on the wooded island of Utøya, where he killed sixty-nine more, most of them teenage members of the country's governing Labour Party. In [this book], the journalist Åsne Seierstad tells the story of this terrible day and its reverberations. How did Breivik, a gifted child from an affluent neighborhood in Oslo, become Europe's most reviled terrorist? How did he accomplish an astonishing one-man murder spree? And how did a famously peaceful and prosperous country cope with the slaughter of so many of its young?"--Dust jacket flap
A hundred and one days : a Baghdad journal by Åsne Seierstad( )

19 editions published between 2003 and 2009 in English and Swedish and held by 565 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"For one hundred and one days - from January until April 2003 - Asne Seierstad worked as a reporter in Baghdad for Scandinavian, German, and Dutch media. Through her articles and live television coverage she reported on the events in Iraq before, during, and after the attacks by the American and British forces. Always in search of a story far less obvious than the American military invasion, Seierstad now brings to life the world behind the headlines in this account of her time among the people of Iraq." "The only woman in the world to cover both the fall of Kabul in 2001 and the bombings of Baghdad in 2003, Asne Seierstad redefines war reporting with her book - and puts a human face on a country still caught in a battle for peace."--BOOK JACKET
Two sisters : a father, his daughters, and their journey into the Syrian jihad by Åsne Seierstad( Book )

16 editions published between 2016 and 2019 in 5 languages and held by 484 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The riveting story of two sisters' journey to the Islamic State and the father who tries to bring them home. Asne Seierstad puts the problem of radicalization into painfully human terms, using instant messages and other primary sources to reconstruct a family's crisis from the inside. Eventually, she takes us into the hellscape of the Syrian civil war, as Sadiq risks his life in pursuit of his daughters, refusing to let them disappear into the maelstrom. This is a relentless thriller and a feat of reporting with profound lessons about belief, extremism, and the meaning of devotion
The bookseller of Kabul by Åsne Seierstad( Book )

45 editions published between 2002 and 2010 in 4 languages and held by 386 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Two weeks after September 11th, award-winning journalist Åsne Seierstad went to Afghanistan to report on the conflict there. In the following spring she returned to live with an Afghan family for several months. For more than twenty years Sultan Khan defied the authorities - be they communist or Taliban - to supply books to the people of Kabul. He was arrested, interrogated and imprisoned by the communists and watched illiterate Taliban soldiers burn piles of his books in the street. He even resorted to hiding most of his stock in attics all over Kabul. But while Khan is passionate in his love of books and hatred of censorship, he is also a committed Muslim with strict views on family life. As an outsider, Seierstad is able to move between the private world of the women - including Khan's two wives - and the more public lives of the men. And so we learn of proposals and marriages, suppression and abuse of power, crime and punishment. The result is a gripping and moving portrait of a family, and a clear-eyed assessment of a country struggling to free itself from history." -- Provided by publisher

An einem Nachmittag im Oktober 2013 kommen die zwei Teenagerschwestern Ayan und Leila nach der Schule nicht wie gewohnt nach Hause. Stattdessen schicken sie eine E-Mail - mit einer Nachricht, die ihren Eltern und Geschwistern schier die Luft zum Atmen nimmt: Die beiden Schwestern befinden sich auf der Reise nach Syrien, um sich dort dem Islamischen Staat anzuschließen. Sofort begibt sich ihr Vater auf die Suche nach ihnen mitten hinein ins Kriegsgebiet. Auf seiner verzweifelten und lebensgefährlichen Odyssee kooperiert er mit Schmugglern, Geheimdiensten und Terrormilizen. Wieso haben seine Töchter freiwillig ihr sicheres Leben aufgegeben? Wieso wurden im Vorfeld die Zeichen nicht richtig gedeutet? Und wie schafft er es, sie wieder zurückzuholen, notfalls auch gegen ihren Willen? Åsne Seierstad beleuchtet das Thema in seiner gesamten Komplexität. Sie deckt nicht nur die Hintergründe der Radikalisierung sowie die Auswirkungen auf die Hinterbliebenen auf, sondern gewährt auch dramatische Einsichten in das Leben und Überleben im Terrorstaat.
