A mass murderer who killed 77 people has been trying to sell the rights to a film and book about his life for £7million.

Norwegian Anders Breivik, now 42, has sent 20 letters to filmmakers begging them to re-tell his story on screen as well as posting invites to be interviewed in prison, according to The Sun on Sunday.

It said the killer, who is serving 21 years, penned his own film script and a biography before valuing the material at £7million ($10million).

A source told the publication: ‘Breivik’s bid for fame, money and freedom is an insult to his victims and their families.

‘So too is the prison life he lives. Breivik lives a life of Riley in prison. He’s never said sorry for his wicked crimes and he has no plans to.

‘He still wants to inspire others and he still believes in a fascist revolution. His plans to make money from the murders is an utter insult to his victims and their families.’

Breivik, who has changed his name to Fjotolf Hansen, penned his works from his three-room ‘cell’ in Skien prison.

It is complete with a study, gym and kitchen which allows him access to video games, a TV and exercise. 

In 2018, he lost his legal claim that his near-isolation in prison violated a ban on inhuman or degrading treatment and runs contrary to a right to privacy and family life under the European Convention on Human Rights.

Oslo district court agreed with him in a 2016 ruling but it was overturned by an appeals court in March 2017. 

Norway’s Supreme Court declined to hear his appeal in the case.

Norway said at the time that draconian measures, including hundreds of strip searches and no contact with other inmates, are justified for the unrepentant far-right extremist who could be attacked by other prisoners. 

The anti-Muslim far-right extremist, who is thought to be making a fresh bid for parole, killed 77 people in Norway’s worst peacetime atrocity in July 2011. 

He killed eight people and wounding dozens of others after setting off a car bomb outside the government headquarters in Oslo.

Sixty-nine people there were killed, most of them teenagers, before he surrendered to police.

His youngest victim was just 14 years old. 

At the time of the attacks, Breivik claimed to be the commander of a secret Christian military order plotting an anti-Muslim revolution in Europe but later described himself as a traditional neo-Nazi who prays to the Viking god Odin.   

Criminals are forbidden from profiting from their crimes after conviction in many countries – including the UK – but Breivik believes Norway’s liberalism will present him with the opportunity to do so.
