1. Nope, they were actually one of the few countries that did not surrender to the Germans during WW2. Despite being caught off guard and outnumbered 33 to 1, the Norwegians held off the Wehrmacht for three months before evacuating the government overseas to Britain. They then fought a guerrilla war with hundreds of commandos and tens of thousands of resistance people for the next five years. They tied up about half a million German troops, there just to keep the country officially in German hands.They provided vital intelligence for the Allies, stopped the Nazi nuclear programme, and in 1944 they had a chance to recapture their country, as 90% of the German troops were leaving in order to reinforce the Panzerjäger divisions that were closing in on the American and British troops that had landed in France. Instead of waiting for the Germans to leave and take back their country, they trapped about 450.000 German troops in the country, in one of the largest joint sabotage operations in history, as they destroyed all infrastructure leading out of the country and all ships large enough to carry troops. Without the reinforcements from "Festung Norwegen", the Panzerjäger divisions found themselves isolated and outnumbered in the Ardennes, and the American troops were eventually able to hold them off in the Battle of the Bulge. The Norwegian sabotage action is considered one of the most important actions in all of WW2, as anyone with interest for the period knows.
2. He will not stay in for 21 years. The Norwegian Civil Law system does not allow charges to stack, however indefinite containment is allowed, effectively creating a life sentence despite the culprit receiving an official sentence of 21 years.
3. The only place in Norway rape has increased notably is in Oslo, and even there only 49% of rapes are carried out by people of a foreign background (a misunderstanding initially led to a false news report that all rapes had been done by Muslims, which was first corrected two days after the newspapers had printed it). And given that the majority of foreigners in Norway are not Muslim, but European, the actual percetnage of rapes carried ut by Muslims probably lies closer to the 25% it should be, according to the demographics of Oslo.
