The navigation seems a bit strange.

I've managed to get apparently several pages of hits for one particular author, but if I
try to go beyond the 1st page, it doesn't show anything.

Also curious not to be able to find anything by Erlend Loe, a popular Norwegian writer.
Ditto Jo Nesbø.

Thanks but I have no interest whatever in ebooks.

Akatsuki from earlier in this thread seems to have had his books shipped to Portugal from Norli.no a few years ago, yet they now state they don't ship outside Norway.

Bokkilden.no does allow me to input an international address but I was hoping to get some advice from our members before proceeding. I want to get the first set of books from the complete works of Knut Hamsun.

So no one here knows any Norwegian online bookstores? Not even our several Norwegian members?

There seem to be a small number of books by Knut Hamsun at saxo.com which is actually a
Danish online bookstore.

(There are many more in Danish and English)



EDIT: If you go to Abebooks, go to "advanced search", put in "Knut Hamsun" for the
author, and "Norsk" in the keywords, you should find some. All 2nd hand I would think.

I have recently found Bokkilden which has allowed me to input a Canadian address. I haven't ordered anything from them yet though. Shipping was 200 kr per order (not per book) last time I looked. Their prices are ridiculous to my standards, but I think that's pretty normal for Norway. I'm probably going to buy an ebook soon; I'll report back if I have any issues.

I successfully ordered and received a few books from bokkilden.no this year, including Sult. In my own searches I found no other routes for buying physical Norwegian books.

Try bookdepository, they ship for free all over the world. (shipping to Russia was slow though)
Also European Books. I've ordered from both sites (in other European languages, that is - the not so major ones like Italian, Croatian, Portuguese)
