In this chapter, I consider the ways Breivik’s interest and engagement with Saga’s music can illuminate his relationship with neo-Nazism. Focusing on his main discussion of the Swedish artist—that in Chapter 3.29 of his manifesto—I seek to uncover the channels through which Breivik came into contact with Saga’s work, what he knows about her past and fan base, and whether or not he is aware of all references in her lyrics. By investigating these questions, I provide insight into Breivik’s level of contact and familiarity with the wider neo-Nazi and white nationalist subculture as well as the extent to which Saga’s lyrics represent his true ideology.
