I got this book for Christmas. What can I say? If you're a royal watcher, and have read other books about Harald before - there isn't really much new. There were some adorable anecdotes, and some new pictures of Harald with his grandchildren, but other than that, it seems mostly to be a rehashing of the things we know.

But it is worth reading to get a complete overview.

The author is a well-known columnist on the Norwegian language, and I do wish he'd used some of it in writing. The text jumped a couple of times, and when quoting sources, it was sometimes hard to know what was quoting the source and what was the author telling about the situation.

It must have been an interesting book if you read it within 2 days, Norwegianne!
I wish I could understand Norwegian. I would love to read it! And of course I would love to see the pictures printed in the book.

The biography will be out about a year after its initial publication date, according to Aftenposten. Twice delayed because the author and Mette-Marit wants to spend more time together.

Still no mentioning of whether it will be out in English.

It's a different publisher than the King's biography. This time, as I mentioned before, it is Font Publishers, Halfdan W. Freihow's company, who is publishing it. They've published books in English before, so who knows? I'll agree that it might not be very likely, but it is the case of supply and demand. Books about royals rarely seem to be translated into languages other than the country in question.

THANK YOU for referring me to this Thread, Norwegianne!
I appreciate your doing that.

Can you please provide us with an e-mail contact so that we who are keen to read about MM in English, may ENCOURAGE the publishers to please put out a translated version?

I would like to e-mail folks and perhaps give them a little nudge, if you will.

I regret not knowing any Norwegian.

Hi HRHAbigail,

I have a suspicion that if you go to the link that norwegianne provided for the company, you will be able to look around yourself and find all of the information that you are seeking, including information about how to get in touch with them, as well as their upcoming projects. This is generally the case with companies, and publishers especially. Best of luck in your search. Perhaps you might even find something that you were not even looking for that might interest you!

Hello my Dear:

How are you this fine day?
THANK you for your reply.

Yes, I would love to e-mail these folks and give them the nicest possible nudge in the direction of translating what looks to be a great book!

Call me Abbie, would you please?

Yay!
I just now e-mailed the TWO contacts, a Mister Ulvestage and a Mister Frelhow, given in the Site. I told them how very much I would LOVE to see The bio of MM translated into English and then available for purchase, here in the USA.
I hope to hear back from one or both of them.
If I do, I will let you all know what I receive, alright?

It would be great to get a biography translated into English. And I would learn Norwegian, but I've already promised myself I'd learn Danish as a summer project.

Good for you!

Well done ... I guess that unless you know one Scandinavian Language, learning ANY language can be most difficult, no?

I just wrote The Publisher, Font Forlag, and a Mr. Ulvestad there.
I asked him if an English translation of any book he publishes on/about MM would be offered to The Public.

Here is what he replied to me:
Quote:

We don't know yet, whether the book will be translated into English.
Please contact us again in September.

Best wishes,

Publisher
Font Forlag
So, I will re-address this matter, with The Publishers, come September.

I am quite pleased to have heard back from them!

VG reports that the official biography on Mette-Marit has been put on ice.

The reason is that the author and Mette-Marit are disagreeing on some things in regards to the content and form of the material.

I suppose it had to be something when it was postponed so many times.
