    Oh I feel sorry 4 her..
    I guess that maybe when she broke that ICE
    that accidentally she released out a prehistoric frozen virus that made her ill 😛
    I hope that poor Agnete of Norway will recover & be just fine on May 4 the EuroVision :)

    I want Agnete to qualify to the Final & her song is my 5th most liked on the 2nd SF alone,
    but to be honest, i really don’t have a good feeling 4 her,
    I dunno if she will get her qualifying ticket 4 the Final..

    ”Stockholm (NORWAY) Syndrome”??
    Karsten Nordal Hauken (that I find him really attractive by the way..)

    The incident (of his sexual assault) happened not recently but years ago for the record.
    And that man (from Somalia) has already spent years in prison,
    So if Karsten wants him to get accepted back in Norway
    & be given a favor to live in the country there then im agreeable.
    The norwegian authorities should find the somali man & get him back to Norway.

    In another case, the person that could had done this could be norwegian & not refugee from abroad..
    And when the same norwegian person would be released from jail then he would be free to be allowed living in Norway & not get deported.

    Mr. Karsten Nordal Hauken didn’t want the somali man to get deported
    or at least now to return back in Norway..
    SO they should seriously go ahead with this..
    And hopefully if they do, that the somali man will really appreciate his 2nd chance
    & never commit another serious crime like that in future when in Norway.

    Even if the norwegian authorities will always have their eye on that somali man from now on,
    at least he has to be permitted to live again in Norway.
    And its not like his crime was way too heavy/serious.(it could be much worse for him)
    The victim has already not only forgiven him but its the ONE that wants him back in Norway & not stay deported living in an awful third world poor country like Somalia..
