1994: Four men break into the National Gallery of Norway and steal a version of Edward Munch's iconic painting "The Scream," leaving behind a postcard reading "Thanks for the poor security." It was recovered undamaged several months later. Four men were eventually convicted in connection with the theft, but were later released on an appeal thanks to a legal technicality.
