A group of hundreds of international experts are scouring the accused Norway shooter’s 1,500-page manifesto for signs of a secret code.

Rolf Frřysa, the chief technology expert at a broadband internet company in Norway, told the UK Telegraph that when he learned that Anders Breivik left behind a manifesto that plagiarized large portions of the writings of Unabomber Ted Kaczynski, he began to wonder if Breivik also made use of codes in the text of his broadside. Kaczynski famously embedded a code in his writings that took years to crack.
Frřysa started a site where users who want to volunteer can examine the document and share their findings.
When he began examining the document, about 46 internet links attracted his attention. The URLs didn’t work, but did contain numbers inside of them. When Frřysa plugged those numbers in as GPS coordinates, he found that most of the links corresponded to sites in Europe, such as a train station in Liverpool. You can see a map of the cities here.
Police think the GPS coordinates "could be a part of the plan to get attention," according to a translation of VG newspaper. But they could also be other terror attack targets, as Breivik said initially he was part of a "cell."
According to an English translation of an account in the newspaper Dagavisen, a group of hackers called Noria broke into Breivik’s email and handed over the data to a journalist named Kjetil Stormark. The hacking group thought the emails could shed light on whether Breivik was working alone or had accomplices, as he originally claimed. But it’s unclear if police will be able to use the emails, since they were illegally obtained.
Breivik is accused of detonating a bomb in Oslo that killed eight people and then going to a youth camp affiliated with Norway’s ruling political party and killing 69 people there. In his manifesto, he rails against multiculturalism and Islam, among other things.
