Øyvind Fjeldheim tv2 host films in Poulsbo for TV Series about Norwegians living in the United States

Repost- If anyone hears about this series on TV 2, please let us know! (May, 2011)

Today was an exciting day at Marina Market, we were filmed by Norwegian TV station TV2  .  The host was Øyvind Fjeldheim  his show  Sporløs with Sturla Berg-Johansen helps Norwegians to look for relatives, near and dear ones they have lost contact with, over the years.  For those of you unfamiliar with TV 2 it is the largest commercial television station in Norway.

He came in this morning and asked about Lutefisk TV Dinners
"Do you have any Lutefisk?" he asked, clearly expecting a negative  response.

"Ya, sure we carry it all year round" I said pointing to the 1lb, 2.5lb and TV dinners in the freezer, "it is right next to the lefse".

Clearly shocked and happy at the oddity of a Lutefisk TV Dinner, he inquired if he and his crew could film inside the store.   Well, let me think.... no brainer dude, of course you can film inside my business! Like, duh!

He told me the story line of the six episode show was Norwegians living in the United States.  I asked him if he wanted me to have some on hand when he came back?  His affirmative response had me transform into cult hero Penelope Garcia , I whipped out my cellphone and called my dear friend Mossen H. and her neighbor Wally O.  Once enlisted they came down, the crew showed up and fun was had by all. 

It turned out that Øyvind Fjeldheim was from the same hometown in Norway as Mossen!  Well that broke the ice, Øyvind and Mossen spent nearly an hour walking around the store her pointing out items from Norway and the crew filming.

Of course the crew left with a bag full of Freia Norwegian Chocolate, it is the best!

Other Norwegain themed places the crew filmed were our friends at The Nordic Maid, a fantastic Scandinavian Gift Shop and the Leikarringen Dancers at the Poulsbo Sons of Norway Lodge (a great group of kids btw!)
