If you’ve seen Prison Break, this is one prison that’ll look like a luxury hotel. What is being touted as the world’s poshest prison was unveiled recently in Norway. Spread over 75 acres, Holston prison was built at a cost of £15 million and features a £ 1 million skyscraper size mural. All 252 prison ‘suites’ come with a mini-fridge, flat-screen TV, attached bathroom and windows without bars. There is a full spec kitchen, coffee tables, couches, an in-prison gym, a rock-climbing wall, a music studio and a luxurious library. The architects say taking everything hostile out of prison stay will help reduce Norway’s already low crime rate. Really?
