OSLO — A lawyer representing the anti-Muslim extremist who carried out the massacre in Norway sought to fill in some of the wide gaps in public knowledge about his client on Tuesday, portraying him as a “very cold” person who lived in his own world, buttressed by drugs and the belief that he was a warrior doomed to die for a cause others did not comprehend.

The lawyer, Geir Lippestad, declined to say whether his client, Anders Behring Breivik, 32, would plead insanity as a defense when his case comes to trial. However, he told a news conference, “this whole case has indicated that he is insane.”

Police and court officials have said Mr. Breivik has admitted to detonating a large bomb in Oslo that killed eight people and then killing 68 mainly young people at a summer camp run by the ruling Labor Party on the nearby island of Utoya. The attacks on Friday amounted to one of the worst massacres in postwar Europe.

“He believes that he is in a war and in a war you can do things like that,” Mr. Lippestad said.

He called Mr. Breivik “very cold.”
