From The Guardian

Two Edvard Munch masterpieces stolen in one of the world’s most audacious art thefts two years ago have been recovered, police said yesterday. A version of the Norwegian artist’s most famous painting, The Scream, and his Madonna are in the hands of the authorities apparently in good condition after speculation that they had been irreparably damaged.

At a news conference in Oslo the head of the city’s organised crime unit, Iver Stensrud, said: “We are 100% certain they are the originals. The damage was much less than feared.”
