A suspicious suitcase at Oslo's main train station triggered a brief evacuation.
Norwegian domestic intelligence chief Janne Kristiansen has told the BBC no evidence has so far been found linking Anders Behring Breivik with far-right extremists in Norway or elsewhere.
Mr Breivik admits Friday's bomb and gun attacks that killed at least 76 people.
He says he is part of a wider movement and has written about UK contacts.
But Ms Kristiansen said she thought he had acted completely on his own. She also cast doubt on suggestions by Mr Breivik's lawyer that he was insane.
The bomb in the capital Oslo targeted buildings connected to Norway's Labour government, while the mass shooting occurred at an annual Labour Party youth camp on a small island, Utoeya.
Mr Breivik has said he had wanted to inflict maximum damage on the party, which he accuses of failing the country on immigration, according to his lawyer.
Janne Kristiansen: "So far we don't have any evidence of cells in Britain or in Norway"
Ms Kristiansen, who heads Norway's Police Security Service, told the BBC: "We don't have indications that he has been part of a broader movement or that he has been in connection with other cells or that there are other cells."
But she added that the possible existence of accomplices was being investigated. "I don't think there is any limits to the evil in this person's head," she said. "We can't take any chance with this person."
About contacts with right-wing activists in the UK or other countries, she said: "We are in close contact with our sister services in Europe, America and elsewhere."
