If I Ever Get Sent To Jail, I Hope It's To Norway's Halden PrisonS

A new jail opens in Norway on the 1st of April, which is incredibly modern with Banksy-style street art everywhere, natural lighting courtesy of Philips, and even a music studio. It looks nicer than some people's houses, needless to say.

It'll contain 252 inmates when it opens next month, and will be the second-largest prison in Norway—situated near the Swedish border on 300 acres of land. Over 1.3 billion kroner (about $217m) was spent constructing it, with six million kroner ($1m) spent on the artwork alone, which was daubed by the Norwegian street artist Dolk.
