@Richard - that sounds just absurd. It might have been that way, god knows why, but today, and any other time I have flown within Norway or outside of Norway, the routine is that you need to remove your laptop from handluggage and place it in its own cart while moving through security. That is how things go down, what you have experienced sounds just not in touch with anything I know, and must have been misunderstandings and/or some extraordinary events surrounding.
just a quick note on the laptops and the hand luggage, however that might be important - you do need to remove your laptop from your handluggage when passing through airport security in Norway, just as anywhere else. I know this because well, I am a Norwegian living in Norway. Just to clarify! :)
