OSLO, Norway, April 26 (UPI) -- A court in Oslo, Norway, has ordered a 32-year-old man held in relative isolation on suspicion he masterminded the theft of Edvard Munch's paintings.

The man was arrested last week and will be kept in custody for four weeks, reports the Aftenposten.

Munch's paintings Madonna and The Scream were stolen last summer from Oslo's Munch Museum.

The unidentified suspect was arrested outside his home. Two other suspects in the robbery are also in custody.

The paintings haven't been recovered, but police say they believe they're still in Oslo, the newspaper said.
