5.0 out of 5 stars The best Norwegian-English dictionary bar none
I bought two or three different dictionaries before I found this. It does tend slightly towards Norwegian speakers using it in English studies, but it is by far the best Norwegian-English dictionary available.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not for the serious translator
I am not sure who would need this book. Probably it is mainly intended for the Norwegian market. The Blå Ordbok is a greatly abridged version of the original and does not include many words used in the last century. I think it goes to show that more Norwegians learn English than English learn Norwegian and that this tends to influence the market..
