Russian investigators had initially opened a terrorism probe into the attack, but later changed it to murder. “A preliminary examination of...

    Just out on Netflix, Paul Greengrass's new film, 22 July, takes its title from the date in 2011 on which a lone maniac named Anders Behring Breivik murdered seventy-seven people in Norway.

The second third of...
