No way! I hadn't heard anything else about it - thanks very much for the update.

This is the first time I have been on the site and although this is old news, I just thought you might want to read the additional information the BBC NEWS added to that Stolen Scream entry.

"The Norwegian government received a demand for a ransom of $1m, but never got proof that those demanding the money had the painting.

An anti-abortion group claimed it could get the painting returned if an anti-abortion film was broadcast on television.

Police dismissed that claim.

The painting was recovered undamaged in a hotel about 65km (40 miles) south of Oslo in May 1994. Three Norwegians were arrested in connection with the theft. "

Although I am guessing you have already known it was safely returned, I just wanted to check you caught your breath. :) Hope I helped! xxx
