To what is your LANGUAGE variable set?

If it has something like
"nb_NO.UTF-8;nb_NO:nb:no_NO:no:nn_NO:nn:da:sv:en", this is indeed
expected when something is not translated to Norwegian (neither Bokmål
nor Nynorsk) but has a Swedish translation.

Norwegian is indeed one of the very few languages for which
alternative languages are still set by Debian Installer (namely Danish
and Swedish as you can see above). IIRC, we kept this on suggestion
from the Norwegian translators.
