Decide for yourself if these people look Norwegian…..
This is a criticism of the The Local’s careful selection of what picture of people (out of the hundreds no doubt) to include in the piece. What message they are trying to sublimely project.

A total of 8.1 million purchases were carried out with credit cards during the Black Friday shopping ‘holiday’.
This is the highest number of card transactions in a single day, according to Nets Norway.
The transactions on the big shopping day were 6.1 percent higher than on Black Friday 2015 and the total 3.3 billion kroner ($385m, €363m) spent was 5.7 percent higher than last year.
“Although a new record was set for the number of card purchases, there were several days just before Christmas last year where the turnover was higher than it was on Friday,” Nets Norway spokesman Stein Arne Tjore told NTB.
