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)

All of the sites based outside Norway have a very poor selection of Norwegian books. For example I just checked that second link you posted and they didn't even have "Sult", one of the most famous Norwegian books ever written.

And the first site I mentioned offers four different editions of Sult.

Besides, the selection is usually oriented at those who are still learning the language.

And not much else. No Sofies verden. No Is-slottet. No Flaggermusmannen. No Min kamp.

lichtraush, you should be able to find all those titles at www.ark.no, which snorrews also referred to above. According to their site they have 3 million titles in their catalogue, and they promise to ship Norwegian books within 3 to 10 days.

For shipping outside of Norway they charge 200 NOK (150 if you are in another Nordic country). They have a disclaimer regarding any customs duty you might have to pay in your country depending on the value of the books.

Ark is one of the biggest bookstores in Norway and totally reliable. I've used them a couple of times for online orders and they've never failed me.
