Norwegian man convicted of murder in 1958 in a much-debated case, and released from prison in 1974. Serving 16 years in prison before being released, he continuously claimed his innocence.

On 6 December 1957, 16-year-old girl Rigmor Johnsen (born 23 June 1941) was raped and murdered in Oslo. Fredrik Fasting Torgersen, then 23, a small-time criminal with several prior convictions for theft and violence, was arrested and charged with the crime. On 16 June 1958, despite very little evidence connecting him to the crime scene, Torgersen was convicted and sentenced to life imprisonment. This marked the beginning of one of the most controversial cases in Norwegian criminal history.

His calls for resumption of proceedings were denied by the Supreme Court of Norway in 1976 and 2001, and again by the independent Criminal Cases Review Commission in 2006.

Torgersen died on 18 June 2015, aged 80, a week after his sixth call for a resumption of his case. At the time of his death, he was hospitalised with cancer.
