Thanks. I think my mother, who grew up in Kongsberg, will enjoy this.

Putting that accent on e's (Rosén) is fairly common in Sweden. When I first saw it, I thought it was an affectation.

Dialects indeed. Many years ago, I was sitting outside a cafe and thought the people at a nearby table were German tourists. After a while, I realized that they were speaking Norwegian. From Bergen, so it must date back to the Hanseatic League. I've also heard that visiting Icelanders thought folks on some outer, northern Norwegian islands spoke Icelandic a bit strangely!
