“A fiery soul who knew everyone”

Hanne Merethe Englund, 56, is described as artistic, colorful and a fiery soul.

A neighbor tells VG that she used to have annual summer parties for those who lived in the neighborhood on Hyttegatan. She knew everyone in the area.

“It is completely incomprehensible, here we do not lock our doors”

Gun Marith Madsen, 78, was also an artist who lived on Hyttegatan. She is described as an aesthetic woman who also knew the people in the neighborhood well, according to VG.

– It is completely incomprehensible, what has happened. Here we do not lock our doors, says one of Gun’s neighbors and friends to the newspaper. They have decided to do what they think Gun wanted.

– Many here are scared now. But we must show that we are taking back our lives.

Couples who met in adulthood

Liv Berit Borge, 75, and Gunnar Erling Sauve, 75, became a couple in adulthood. According to neighbors, they often sat on the porch or outside the house and talked to people who passed by, especially in the summer.

A friend of Liv tells VG that the couple loved to travel.

– It is a little strange to think of all the places they have been, where everything has gone well, and then they are killed at home, she says.

A city in mourning

Andréa Meyer, 52, also lived on Hyttegatan in Kongsberg. A neighbor tells VG that she was very nice, welcoming and a good listener.

The neighbor finds it difficult that the names have been published, but partly also good because “the mourning process can start properly now”.

The neighbors in the area in Kongsberg are strongly influenced by what has happened and have gathered to honor the victims during the week.
