About 11.50 today we could read that Scream [and the Madonna has been] stolen from Norway museum. Not in BBC World, of course, but in Aftenposten and at NRK. Four, then three, and now two armed & masked robbers have stolen Munch’s paintings Scream and the Madonna, and the museums expect a demand for randsom. This is not the first time Norwegian treasures like this are stolen (if you can read Norwegian, see this story in VG), but luckily they have so far usually turned up again after some time. After all, would you let anyone into your home knowing you had a hot painting in it?
