In an article in the newspaper VG, Professor Stan Hawkins discuss how the Swedish singer Laleh and her song "Some Die Young" has become important for people affected by the terror attacks in Oslo and Utøya on July 22 2011. Hawkins says that particularly the young generation identify with the artist and the song. And it is not without importance that the artist herself is of a  non-Scandinavian descent.
