Tore Tønne (March 5, 1948 - December 20, 2002) was the Norwegian Minister of Health and Social Affairs (responsible for social affairs) 2000-2001 in the first cabinet Stoltenberg. Tønne committed suicide after newspaper writings about investigations over alleged economic improprieties committed after the conclusion of his term in the Norwegian cabinet.[1] This incident led to a debate about media responsibility and individual rights in Norway.

Ivar Hippe wrote a book about him entitled, Mektig og avmektig: Tore Tønne, media og maktspillet bak kulissene.
