I am sure some people are aware of this, but i don't know if anyone has discussed this subject yet.A Time Article on them
Long story short, Norway's prisons are pretty mild, even for violent offenders. Prisoners live in rather comfortable conditions. Despite this Norway has very low crime and Recidivism rates.

But what are your thoughts on this?
