Can someone explain in the article the connection of Toska to the stolen Munch paintings? I don't get it. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 04:45, 3 November 2007 (UTC)

You sure Toska grew up in Ullevål? I know for a fact that he went to Bjølsen Skole (skole = school)that is in, yes, Bjølsen. If he lived in Ullevål there would be closer schools to go to.

Not my data. Might better be edited as Oslo, don't you think? By the way, the insert on the Munch robbery or other information is in my opinion not libellous, as he has stood trial and been convicted or acquitted for the crimes mentioned. Reference to his involvement in the role of getting the pictures back does not point to him being involved in that crime, however likely. It can be cited from reliable news sources that there have been conversations between his lawyer and the state attourney Busch on this. More data on the police involvement might be slander. It has however been an exceptional amount of circumstantial and hard evidence cirulated in the media these last years on this issue. It is therefore not an exaggeration or skewing of facts that there have existed various complex networks bordering on scandal. Naming those persons, whether it be fellow unvicted criminals, familiy or those involved as informers, business relationships and police agents would be a sensitive matter.


Is this relevant enough to belong in the article? (Moved here from article space) RJFJR (talk) 20:54, 12 December 2008 (UTC)

Toska is considered an excellent chess player, and won several school tournaments as a child. In 1989 finished fourth in the Norwegian Youth Championship. He defeated the now International Master Helge Nordahl in a sharp sacrificial game, and Knut Bøckman, annotating the game for Aftenposten praised Toska's attack writing "May David Toska and the other freshmen of his age keep his touch for the art of combination".[1]

Munch painting theft[edit]

I removed this from the article because I can't find anything in it mentioning this person. Did he steal them? Plan it? Was he suspected? ewmoved until relevance determined:

Edvard Munch's paintings The Scream and Madonna were stolen 22 August 2004 by three men. All clues as to who might have ordered the theft seemed to run dry after a few links, clues and hints.

on 30 August 2006 Munch's paintings returned almost unscathed. Police refuses to say a word about where they found the paintings, nor whom they might suspect. No arrests were said to be made nor any reward for tips having been paid. M&M however, pledged to pay out 40.000 bags of chocolate candy to whoever might have facilitated the rescue of Munch's paintings.
